Data is the new

I stumbled upon a rant titled  Data is not the new oil — Tech Insights

You’ve heard it many times and so have I: “Data is the new oil” Well it isn’t. At least not yet. I don’t care how I get oil for my car or heating. I simply decide what to cook and where to drive when I want. I’m unconcerned which mechanism is used to refine oil […]

Funny, in my own rant “data is not the new gold“, I claimed that “oil” was a better analogy for data than gold. Obviously, any “X is the new Y” sentences are problematic but it’s still funny how we like them.
