A combination of recommendations, observations, and personal updates

Welcome back.
As I’m racing towards my first big break in 2017 in about two weeks (10 days in France), this is just a quick check in to let you know about all the good articles I read in the last couple of weeks.

My vacation reading stack for France is ready.
I always love me a good summer reading list. I’m already set for France but would love to hear your recommendations on what book to take to the beach or the balcony this summer (fiction and non-fiction). I will collect all the recommendations and put together a list for the next issue.
Oh, and I wouldn’t put Walkaway on your list.

Favorite Quotes
“The best question I get asked in my job is: What’s the worst that could happen?”
Big data can be a powerful tool for the good of society, but data is not evidence, and the rise of the use and misuse of big data in policy has risen in parallel with its more commercial deployment.
