Bright Tapestry Data is a digital Menlo Park for information acquisition. When we're not providing expert advice to leading Canadian NGO's we're developing new apps, open-source data sets, features, web-based platforms, and initiatives that connect people with high-quality information. We're here to beat the age-old problem of misinformation through trial-and-error, troubleshooting, and tinkering.
Misinformation comes down to bad incentives, bad processes, and conflicts of interest. We strive to take all that out of the equation and implement four key features that ensure quality in everything we do:
1) Establishing research specifications a-priori as this is one of the most effective safeguards against misinterpretation and misrepresentation of the facts.
2) It is with pride that we require all the funding for a given research project upfront so that leverage is out of the question when it comes to finding and reporting the facts.
3) Strong channels whereby our revenue streams are coming from parties with a healthy amount of distance and impartiality with respect to the subjects we are researching.
4) Above all, an empirical approach rooted in the scientific method and logical positivism.
