Fascinating interactive visualization of the NYC subway map as only the NYT can do.
ClickHouse sounds like worth checking out if you’re looking for a real-time analytics solution. The folks at Sentry spent almost a year evaluating solutions and migrating their entire data stack from Postgres to ClickHouse.
Ethan Knox with a great take on what it takes to be “data-driven”.
A business user that is new to data-driven decision making may argue that they can’t possibly know what data to expect or how it will be used, without first having access to the data in a business intelligence tool. Try to imagine the same logic in a different context; let’s say a factory manager requests a new \$100k machine for an assembly line. If the manager is unable to describe what the machine actually does or articulate how the machine will be used to make a profit, but insists that, once installed, the machine will prove to be a great investment… would this sound ludicrous? Most data initiatives cost far more than the \$100k mystery machine, and yet this happens every day.
Los Angeles is a bewildering city to live in.
