Lunch! Extracurricular data activities.

I've gotten a lot of questions recently about how someone can build up a resume to transition into analytics, without going to a traditional academic program. Do you think it's possible to build up skills in your spare time to compete in the job market? What kind of data-related extra curricular activities are you involved in?

      Levenshtein distance of lunch from from launch. How to do WSD for "boat" vs. "firing rocket"? WSD is 1 from WMD. Conclusive proof? No, but microsense disambiguation task seems to plateau below 60%. Can you afford to take that chance?
