Not really. Behind every category there is a story, often a tacit and unexamined story, which is why people don't interpret categories the way you expect. Unpack any data point and you will find a story inside. Can't share data without sharing stories.

You can't improve what you can't repeat. Measurement is a tool of repetition, but not sufficient in itself. Structure fosters both repetition and measurement.

Exactly what I fear about content strategy's obsession with taxonomy. Classification is not storytelling, but is is more comforting and far less messy to do. Stories are how we grapple with the irreducible uncertainty of life. Everything is miscellaneous.

Because it is a constant that for every problem we encounter someone will say it is the greatest problem, the final catastrophic problem. And so far those people have been 100% wrong. Eventually one of them may be right, but it is nevertheless optimal to ignore them.

Certainly, and, equally, the content design choices available to us are all less-than-perfect as well. There is a point beyond which our attempts to make content better can actually only make it worse, to make it more findable only make it less.

We are all partisans. Not all partisans are members of parties.

The trouble with this piece is it assumes voters want truth. They want their side to win, and they are not squeamish about how the sausage is made. Left or right, they want their interest defended by any blow that lands.

You could say, I don't do that, but if you like I will review it for style, grammar, substance, and rhetoric. Because you will anyway, and you might as well get credit for it.

Every social revolution proposed by the left or the right is supported by telling lies about history. We study history so we know they are lies. (If you can find a history program that is not actively telling the lies of one side or the other.)

Much as I love structure, I'm not convinced that graphs are the answer to AI. Human intelligence isn't based on graphs. I believe it is based on stories. Can we teach computers stories? Or do they ineluctably depend on experience?
