Life update: I’ve defended my thesis and I’m now the Director of Data at Locu.  This doesn’t change much on the blog, as I’ll still periodically update it with random thoughts.  I’m also doing a bit of blogging on the Locu blog on topics like our technology workflow, designing for crowds, and the human side of crowdsourcing.

It’s an exciting and very different next step for me.  I’m still very excited about introducing new students to data and computer science, and will keep that up as well.
