I’ve had some great talks with Mike Loukides (
@mikeloukides). After our last chat, we decided to publish some of what we had discussed:
Last week, Mike took the first part and wrote up Leading Indicators. This is a look at how to size up an organization’s data science efforts from the outside, perhaps as a possible interview candidate.
Today, in Steering the ship that is data science, I ask what today’s data science boom can learn from the late-1990s tech boom. In particular, how can data science reap the rewards of being the Hot New Thing while avoiding its pitfalls?
