A Data Science Central Community
1. New Hadoop Community
Data Science Central has created a new community: http://www.Hadoop360.com. This is a new DSC channel. Other channels include Analytics, Big Data, and Visualization. We will soon add more articles, including salaries for Hadoop engineers, Hadoop books and training, list of most influential Hadoop people, success stories, jobs, events etc.
2. New Data Science Book
Dr. Granville's upcoming Wiley book debunks all the myths about data science. If you think data science is not new, or is not a science, explore the table of contents of this 300+ page book, at http://bit.ly/17WNV5I.
3. Most recent data science positions
Check http://www.analytictalent.com to find most recent data science, big data and analytics positions.
4. Three reasons to attend the big Data Science Summit Next Week, in the Bay Area

5. New Data Science Central Acquisition
Data Science Central has acquired http://www.MessagingNews.com, a leading source of information for messaging professionals. This is separate from our other DSC channels, although Dr. Granville, co-founder, will occasionally publish articles that are relevant to both communities, for instance: new algorithm to compress terabytes of highly redundant web or email data, Algorithm to automatically categorize and prioritize email, and Better spam, copyright infringement and plagiarism detection.
