Wonderful, terrifying, powerful

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the Ontario Hospital Association’s Social Media Conference. It was one of those days where I learned a lot and met some really smart, really fascinating people.

That’s pretty much my favourite kind of day.

One of the speakers was Nora Young, who spoke about data. Her presentation had so many takeaways (I’m beginning to realize I’m a data nerd, data can tell awesome stories), but this slide has stayed with me.

This is wonderful.

This is terrifying.

This is powerful.

So simple. Just five different words. But think about it. In the Venn diagram of life, pretty amazing things happen where wonderful, terrifying and powerful overlap.
