Re: [Arlington-Code-Shop] Mode raises $2M and opens 'GitHub for data' to the public -- Tech News and Analysis - I think you've got it exactly right, Michelle. The two strike me as complementary.

Perhaps its the focus on coding in SQL - which is really important for data scientists - maybe not so much for the system level civic hacker. The articl Michelle K. Jun 22, 2014 11:38 AM
