It’s the final day of Love Your Data Week! Today’s topic is the big picture – transforming, extending, and reusing. Today is about putting the entire week together! Think about all the topics we’ve talked about this week and focus on how to make your data reusable for your future self and others.  Share your plan with us or ask us about ways you can share and reuse on Twitter!
