Been a busy few weeks with the New York R Conference, speaking engagements, writing the second edition of R for Everyone and coding open source packages. The most exciting news involves the news as the Wall Street Journal wrote an article about my NFL Draft work.
It is a great piece with some nice quotes from the Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman and ESPN’s legendary John Clayton that succinctly sums up the work I did and runs the numbers on a few select players.
So now I’ve been in the news for pizza, the lottery and football. Fun mix.
