    Dear Brian, thank you for the energy you’re investing in teaching us about the importance of proper data analytics all these years. The future IS already written in the past so we only need to learn where and how to look for the answers. You made really good points in such a short video! I strongly believe, though, that the key factor in building business more human is not just predicting fans’ behavior, but focusing on those highly engaged people who share the same values and beliefs as we do. They will create the passionate word of mouth that could easily infect their peers too.
