Please tell us about yourself (brevity is a virtue).

Public policy consultant with related public affairs experience: Community organizer, Berkeley MPH and MPP, corporate adviser, think tank expert, and supporter of grassroots policy advocates everywhere. Part of the 'professional' futurist community, but I hate the word 'futurist.'

Why do you want to join?

More than ever, public policy debates are data driven. I and my associates prioritize the use of public and government data to produce policy instruments. I can't learn enough about how to work with this data!

What type of data do you work with?

Sources: Government, public, open source. When appropriate, confidential and proprietary sources. Topics: Health care, government budget/finances, global affairs, and critical issues identified by clients. I track over 100 issues. Tools (Windows based): Google documents, Office, R, and what ever else I need that is free and easy to use.

What is your first name? (we need this due to the security requirements of the space where we hold events)

What Daniel I S. is saying about this Meetup Group

You all are doing a great job! Great programs and a good centralized location. I guess the question is how to monetize and promote further. Videos? Transcripts? Newsletter? Training?
