Hi Everyone,

Welcome to Data Scientists.Net.  I started this site so that I can expand my data scientist social network, you see, I believe that knowledge is the new currency and that old saying "its not what you know, it who you know" now has a new connotation and that is that *its impossible for one person to know enough to get anything really done!*  That might a bit of an extreme statement but my point is that *together more can be achieved*.  Gone are the days when I could just sit in my cave and rely on the knowledge I'd accumulated from from past experiences and knowledge available on the internet to solve problems.  The world is changing at such a rapid pace, these days, I've got to get out into the world and experience it live and in real time (what a drag).  But actually its not all that bad, once I get over my self sabotaging fears and insecurities that have built up over the years due to lack of human interaction (and I mean "normal" human interaction not interactions between my fellow nerd and geek friends), its actually kinda cool.  Finding and solving challenges in real time the data scientists way.  And what I've discovered is that that is where the real innovation and creativity happens... I'd rather be in a real time, uncommon-collaboration with some epidemiologists, genealogists, climatologist or [insertwordhere]ologist, working on solving the challenges of the world that couldn't be solved without the freely and opening exchange of everyone's unique expertise and real time participation of all those involved. 

My aim is to update regularly, share openly, inspire intellectually and play my part in making a difference in the world.
