The data does need to be verifiable and reasonable and you do need the know how to put it in a readily digestible form. That said, this post does offer some advice for people wishing to do more with data online.

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs

OneNote now on Mac, free everywhere, and service powered | Office Blogs | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
When we started OneNote we set out to revolutionize the way people capture, annotate, and recall all the ideas, thoughts, snippets and plans in their life. As many of you have attested, OneNote is the ultimate extension for your brain, but it’s not complete if it’s not instantly available everywhere. We’ve already made a lot of progress in that direction with our mobile, tablet and online web experiences. But there was still a gap. People frequently asked us for OneNote on Mac, and for more ways to capture content.
Via Nik Peachey, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
Given that I have a Mac at home and a windows machine for work this news got me very excited. I have already downloaded it and am in the process of syncing all of my files as we speak. I believe that One Note is one of the more powerful tools of the Office suite.
