I am an economist turned energy forecaster, banker, digital analytics consultant and now Manager of Data Sciences at a Philadelphia-based startup. I’m predominantly a user of open-source technologies (R, Python, Julia, MySQL, Postgres, Hadoop) and a heavy Amazon Web Services user (Redshift, DynamoDB, EC2, S3).
Any number of web measurement and optimization tools may be installed on this blog at any given time as I look to keep up with the industry.
If this type of tracking makes you uncomfortable, note that I have no way of knowing anything about you, as there are no requirements to input PII data on this website. To the extent that you leave any comments, all authentication is done through WordPress, I have no visibility into the authentication process or any data submitted within.
But, if any of this still makes you uncomfortable, please feel free to browse using FireFox or Chrome Private Browsing, AdBlock or similar plugins…really, whatever makes you feel comfortable consuming the content here.
