“Heroic analysts” and journalists keep running into each other, at least in my mind. I realized that two scribbles from last Sunday about journalism can also be about data analysis:
• “… the most precious gems gathered in any journalistic journey are frequently those found around the edges of a story.”
• ” … the secret to memorable nonfiction is so often the writer’s readiness to be surprised.”
They’re both from the same book review. Come to think of it, both belong in the Datadoodle manifesto.
