New Project: Data Science 201

In case you missed my slides I posted this weekend, the end of the presentation mentions a new project I am starting to create. It is called Data Science 201. The goal is simple:

To be the best place on the web for learning about all topics in data science

Blogging is great, but there is more data science resources on the internet than I could ever read/evaluate and blog about. That is why I am creating Data Science 201.

Don’t worry, I will keep this blog going.

Election Day and Twitter

The Twitter Political Index tries to evaluate people’s feeling about the United States presidential candidates. There is loads of data science behind this calculation. Currently, it has Barack Obama in the lead with a score of 66, and Mitt Romney trailing with a score of 56.

Do you know of any other sites trying to predict the election by analyzing social media behavior?

P.S. If you live in the United States, now that you are done reading this post, please find some time to go vote.
