This is definitely not the typical Strata talk. Rodney Mullen, The Godfather of Street Skating, gives a very thought-provoking talk. I do not really follow skateboarding, but Rodney is widely considered one of the best skateboarders on the planet.
I would say the talk applies to data science, but I would also say it applies to life. Here are the high points I took from the talk.
- Share with others
- Take risks to improve
- Be smart enough to know when you are headed in the wrong direction
You should definitely watch the video, because you will likely get something different from the presentation.
By the way, Happy Pi Day!
