Love it!

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!

Needs editing

Lots of golden nuggets in there, but boy do you have to dig. Please focus...

The Hilary ego?

Overall I like the content...I didn’t give a five star because the partnership doesn’t work. Hilary certainly has a great depth of experience...but she strikes me as condescending and snarky. Roger is a balancing and objective force.
