Show me the DATA…

Contrary to what one thinks…. the issue that plagues a water professionals’ ability is the lack of data.  Pure numbers.  We don’t lack technology, we don’t lack skills, we aren’t lacking in thinking power either.  What we are severely lacking is historical data, collected consistently, stored diligently, and available freely.  Nothing helps us grapple with water issues of a region better than solid and sound historical data…

Boring? Well leave this fun party then.. shoo!!  At least these people seem to agree with me ..

What will revolutionize the water industry would be technological advancements and innnovations in data collection, data mining, data storage, and data communication.

I distinctly remember the fluids mechanics homework i was working on many many years ago and i thought to myself... "shit... i get this ... water stuff..". Like the right buttons get pushed in my brain and this "flow" business actually makes sense to me. That was the origin of the love story and it's been going strong through all these years. I have been called many things, "Water Chick", "Aqua Girl" etc.. but I settled for "Ganges" as my screen name... I believe it serves the purpose of what i am trying to do here beautifully. I hope to make this place my "Mecca" for all things water. A place where people like me with no other agenda but pure love for water can come and hang out with a cuppa.... water.. lol.... fine... beer, coffee, wine, vodka, what have you!! Knowledge does not need to take itself too seriously... hopefully we will pick up a thing or two while we are traipsing along and stumbling away... that is the plan... we shall see..
