Who are you? Easy enough: first name, middle name, last name. And we can describe that data structure easily: it's just three blanks.

But what else do we have? Our family. Our education. The places we have lived. Our friends. Our intimate partners. The jobs we have had. The people for whom we have worked and the people who have worked for us. The things we have made. And on and on. Let's start small but then roll it out from there and think through what the data object of our biography would look like.
