I’m back from the non-blogosphere thing… I think it’s called the real world… but anyway, I’m back! Today’s post is about data integrity loss, or whatever it’s called. This is the first all-orginal post, i.e. I didn’t do any research. My best analogy for data loss is somewhat like this: A game of telephone is being played, but only the first and last people know the language, so the middle people make some mistakes, such as saying “fart” instead of “fort”. If only a few people are between those who know the language, mistakes can be corrected, such as turning “fart” back into “fort”. If too many people are in between, though, it could get mis-interpreted. now replace those who don’t know the language with wires, and those who do with routers.
