About DecisionStats

MoNo Final BGBetter Decisions Faster Stats


Author’s note follows-

I started Decision Stats in 2007 , primarily as a tool for reducing information asymmetry especially in some circles in India on technology.  The motivation was

  • build some perspective on data mining, and free online tools
  • Learning ( I turned 30 and had a mid life crisis!)
  • and for developing my writing and research skills ( which were bad ..)
  • Intellectual curiosity ( What does it take to be a Blogger!)

Over time and based on feedback from Web Analytics I started adding interviews and tutorials on DIY analytics.

From a research point of view I branched out into cyber conflict ( hacking and war), social media analytics ( connecting to APIs and analyzing and then optimizing), strategy for open source creators alongside my love for statistical software.

Blog Categories-

  • India

Debunking myths on India – We are better then Slumdog Millionaire but not everyone has access to computer coding.

  • Internet-

Online World especially Websites and sometimes social media and loud computing

  • Analytics – As my previous company  logo said “Analytics is beautiful” I love all things data and write about them here.
  • Google- and
  • SAS – two companies I write about a lot.
  • Company Analysis – If we talk company specific things
  • Interviews – Interaction and views of people.

I also write movie reviews (very short) and my poetry has been moved to a separate blog at http://poemsforkush.com

Follow it there,  or on twitter ( I keep changing the handle!)
