I’m back!!!…My new passion…Data Scientists, Advanced Analytics, and this BIG DATA thing!

Finally got to watch the movie Moneyball, which I have been meaning to for a while. Have you seen it? If not definitely take some time to watch. It is the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players. Based on the book “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game”. The movie gets you pumped up about the potential of analytics and big data. Potentially a good conversation tool when breaking the ice on analytics discussions.
