Strata Week: Leaked documents, intel committees, definition of data mining, and Accumulo

Recommended resources from a former analyst

I was pretty cranky before I spoke with Q Ethan McCallum on the phone today.

I was cranky from absorbing the NSA news dominating many data conversations. There is a lot of yammering going on. Some good. Some super bad. My crankiness dissolved a bit after speaking with Q and other Chicago-based people who are working on positive impact data science projects. You’ll be seeing more from Q and these other data science people within the Strata blog very soon. Utilizing data for positive change makes me happy.

My crankiness also dissolved when I decided to not provide summary points on a few articles covering the latest NSA leaks for the Strata Week element. Instead, I decided to pretend that I was an analyst again and think about the resources that I would have wanted to visit in order to form my own insights and analysis.
