Richard D. Quodomine commented on Jennifer Methvin's blog post Data scientists are wasting their time

Good Morning and Welcome to this addition of the Morning Analytic Coffee Blog.Sorry for the recent delays, between holidays (Happy Canada Day and 4th of July, everyone!) and some personal items I’ve attended to.For a while, I’ve been generalizing about Analytics.
