Data Has a Seat at the Table. This is an axiom that drives a big part of our culture and thinking on the Digerati team at Life.Church. Data doesn’t make decisions; it informs decisions. At the same time, it’s important to have the right data in front of us, and have it visualized in a way that is meaningful and easy to digest. This allows us to make wise decisions. I saw this data visualization video this week and absolutely loved it.

The Trillion Dollar Club continues to grow. What is the Trillion Dollar Club you ask? Well, it’s a group or club of public companies that have reached the trillion dollar market valuation. The newest addition to the club is Alphabet, the parent company of Google. Alphabet joined Apple, Microsoft, and Saudi Aramco in this elite club. You maybe wondering who’s approaching the same status. Well, I’m glad you asked. Amazon was previously in the club, but has fallen out and is now sitting around $925 million and climbing. After Amazon, there is a big drop off with the next batch in the $500+ million range. It’s pretty fascinating. WiKi Listin
