You should reconsider using a „funnel“ to explain how data is going through the process: picture an empty and a full bottle. Using a funnel allows you to decant the water of the full bottle to the empty one. In you are not a galoot, no water is lost. A sieve/filter would do the trick reducing data.

Really clear, concise and informative lecture on this subject. I appreciate when the faculty gives us a practical real world prospective of ways to implement best practices for the different initiatives related to e Discovery.
