Welcome to the stories of my life.
This is the manifestation of my journey to become a data scientist.
My intention is to catalogue, every week, on a Tuesday, my journey to become a data scientist.
That is my goal, purely and supremely. This is my singular focus.
I’m anticipating that this will take something like 5 years to complete. And so, I am committed to this goal for a long time.
I am a 28 year old Australian Male and I’m out here trying to live my dreams. I’ve often felt lost and isolated as well as confused regarding my life direction. This then, is my resolution to solve that. I’ve been interested in Data, Graphics, Information, Ideas and Communication for some length of time approaching forever. And I have come to believe that the study and pursuit of becoming a Data Scientist will allow me to live that dream, that cross-section of interests and obsessions and allow me to approach my best life.
Part of this then, is not expecting really to have made much progress until I hit 33 years of age.
That is frightening.
That number scares me.
But! That is the plan.
I hope for the journey to be fun, terrifying and informative. This is the shape that I intend my life to take. And here, you, dear reader, will be able to witness that Journey. So come, join me on this escapade, as I Oddessy through the Perils of Modern Life and Corporate Sculduggery in an attempt to become a fully fleshed out and respectable engine of capitalism and our inevitable data-controlled future as we say Au Revoir to our free will.
Right. To the essential oils of this Manifesto.
Here is my pledge.
A weekly entry to be published in the afternoon on a Tuesday. This will be my Journey as a Data Scientist. It’ll be published afternoon Australian time and will feature mostly updates on what I’m working on and literally about my studies, my learnings and my thoughts.
A monthly Analytical Entry where I delve deeply into an issue and try and explain data and ideas and their intersections. This could be anything from silly content like Political Polls, to serious aggregated data considering which is the best Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood episode. My desire with these analytical pieces is to go in-depth and use my knowledge to explore a particular issue or idea. This will be published on the first Thursday of the month.
That is it. I also have set up some social media channels so you can follow me around the internet.
Well I hope this has given you a good idea of who I am, what I intend to do, and why you could be wise to follow my blog and see how I go.
You can also reach out to me through the contact form and would genuinely love to hear from you.
Until next week.
