The Data Dividend Project: Delightful, Delusional or Disaster?
On this week’s episode of Diving Into Data, TC takes a look at the Data Dividend Project, led by former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, and how Californians are trying to take back control of their personal data. We also touch on the return of sports in a COVID world and what that looks like.

In our main topic this week, we explore the ins-and-outs of the Data Dividend Project. What is the goal of the project and what kind of impact could it have? What are some of the challenges this movement could face and what could be the unintended consequences. While the logic behind the movement is strong, its still hard to get past the old saying that ‘if you aren’t paying for the product, you are the product.’
Our second topic this week dives into the return of professional sports in the US. While every sports fan is excited to live action again, what kind of financial hit are these teams and leagues taking? And what are the challenges of pulling it off? The only thing we can be certain of is that this is the ultimate opportunity to innovate (in both sports and the business world) and improve experiences for fans and customers alike.
Sit back, relax, grab a drink, practice social distancing… And let’s dive into some data.
