  1. I'm a little disappointed in this article. It's a little incoherent and doesn't do a great job of talking about what it means by statistics. It's something about the political power of data collection?
  2. Extraordinarily strange way of filming this. Extremely good extemporaneous-seeming speaking. Good/interesting content. Worth the listen.
  3. Myria is a distributed, shared-nothing Big Data management system and Cloud service from the University of Washington. We derive requirements from real users and complex workflows, especially in science.
  4. This looks really great. I probably won't make it.

  6. "What modern data science is finding is that nearly any type of data can be used, much like a fingerprint, to identify the person who created it: your choice of movies on Netflix, the location signals emitted by your cell phone, even your pattern of walking as recorded by a surveillance camera."
  7. "DataKindâ„¢ (formerly known as Data Without Borders) brings together leading data scientists with high impact social organizations through a comprehensive, collaborative approach that leads to shared insights, greater understanding, and positive action through data in the service of humanity."
  8. Proprietary R with a bunch of go-fast stuff for big data.
  9. Good for Zeynep publishing this. But I don't really see what the point is. The problem for democracy is that campaigning is about manipulating people to win votes, not about actually engaging in issues. The mass media approaches to this are not particularly less scary to me, even if they are not as effective as new more data-driven approaches.
  10. A new R module that lets you keep your data on disk.
