That'd be stretching it. The vast majority of data architects don't talk
about registers, boot blocks, 1s and 0s, etc. Their interface with "data"
happens at levels higher than physical storage of magnetic particles or just
the artificial casting of data types. They talk about architecture, schemas,
models, object graphs, data flows, etc. It really is very, very difficult to
talk about "data" without context, as something other than "information."
Homo sapiens don't consume "data."
