August 1, 2017

What a scientist does in roughly chronological order: Obtain, Scrub, Explore, Model, and iNterpret

  1. Obtain: pointing and clicking does not scale.
  2. Scrub: the world is a messy place
  3. Explore: You can see a lot by looking
  4. Models: always bad, sometimes ugly
  5. iNterpret: “The purpose of computing is insight, not numbers.”
