(We're investing a lot of time and effort building a great community here so it's important that we know at least a little bit about our members. Please answer all questions, even if briefly!). #1: Why are you interested in "the business of data"?

I think I'm interested in the data that drives human behavior, particularly when those drivers are involved in making decisions regarding trading (money for goods, etc).

Where do you work (company, institution) or study (school) and what do you do?

I work for Brandwatch, a social media monitoring company that builds everything it needs to work in house (crawling, storage, metadata extraction, the UI, and the UX). Nothing fits better than a custom solution! I'm a Data Scientist, in charge of turning the information we collect into something valuable for our clients.

Please confirm your first name and last name (we need to create security badges for the meetups)

Introduction

Hi, My name is Nate and I have a particular passion for econometrics, GIS (and the Google Maps API), Python, and vanilla JavaScript. I'm getting into Processing (followed hopefully by a Java obsession), and graph theory. Cheers!
