What’s in a Name?

The Qi takes its name from the vital force said to animate all living things in traditional Chinese culture. Today, one could consider data a kind of qi that animates our digital lives. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your data is stored correctly. As 4th-century B.C. Confucian philosopher Menicus put it, “Qi is extremely big and extremely powerful. Nourish it […] and protect it from harm, and it will fill heaven and earth.”
