Alternative Banking System
I just got invited to join the Alternative Banking System working group from Occupy Wall Street. It’s run by Carne Ross, who has written a book called the Leaderless Revolution. I’m excited to meet the group this coming weekend. It looks like there will be many interesting and unconventional thinkers there.
I got back last night from my Cambridge, where I spoke to people about doing math in business. I will write up my notes from that talk soon and post them, and they will include my suggestions for how to prepare yourself to be a data scientist if you’re an academic mathematician. This is a first stab at a longer term project I have to define a possible “data science curriculum”.
