One of the things that most attracted me to the field of BI was the opportunity to add value to any situation.  Data analysis can positively leverage any situation.  In the absence of information, choices we have to make are not always clear.  In a nutshell, that is why I gravitated towards this field.

However, I haven’t found many opportunities ‘greater good’ opportunities professionally.  I hope actions like this start snowballing.  This is indeed good stuff.  This data should be free!
