Now don’t believe the last line because it isn’t true, I made it up. That is the point of this discussion.   We deal with information on a minute to minute basis.  We rely on information to make decisions and we put our trust in words that others have written.  How do you know what is right or wrong?  How do you validate the facts from the fiction?  Clearly it is easy to see that we can put false information into a data thread with true information and cause problems.    This applies to any information we deal with.   This is something that we need to think about as we move forward in dealing with data and moving to the cloud!
