I like how I can be informed about happenings in data science and data analysis without having to sit down and read something. I like the non-data bits, too - maybe even more than the data parts. I want to be friends in real life with them!

I like how I can be informed about happenings in data science and data analysis without having to sit down and read something. I like the non-data bits, too - maybe even more than the data parts. I want to be friends in real life with them!

Good
