What's your problem?! No, seriously, how can I help...
5 years ago I was a PhD Chemist but I had a lucky break (literally broke a lab) and got out of that sinking industry and into something with decent growth prospects... I love data science because there are trails to follow around every corner.
Mostly work on business analysis and research around data sources and platforms. At 1000heads we have built our own WOMTrak tool which brings together lots of different sources to give a brand a view on the people talking about them, their advocacy etc. Mostly working with MongoDB, Lucene, postgresql and interested in hadoop. Also would love to know more about how people are approaching the data protection act.

Leading development of social data related apps @1000heads. Right now been looking into mashups of boardreader, topsy, peoplebrowsr and datasift to find out more about the people behind our data.
