Every day we are bombarded with a sea of data, of facts, of numbers, of graphics and info-graphics about us, and about the world in which we live. How are our brains wired to process it all? Is it rewiring us? Or is data really just one great big illusion? Take a journey to understand how your brain processes information. You’ll never look at facts the same way again.

Benjamin Ellis has worked in the online world since the 80’s, leaving him with a questionable taste in fashion, but a sharp eye for the way Internet technology has changed how we work and live. Following a career in the early years of technology companies including Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks, Benjamin is CEO of SocialOptic, where he draws on his background in engineering, education, psychology and business to create technology to help people make better decisions.
