John L. Ries commented on William Vorhies's blog post What’s New in Data Prep
"If you don't like data prep, you do what my then-boss did many years ago and train a programmer (me in that case) to do it for you.  Personally, I think data prep is fun and the process ended up teaching me a great deal about the modeling…"

John L. Ries commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Don’t Let Data Science Become a Scam

John L. Ries commented on Michael Walker's blog post The Deadly Data Science Sin of Confirmation Bias
