The blog section of the DataKind website has LOTS of great stuff up about the NY City Parks DataDive.  I just went down the rabbit hole for 45 minutes reading all of it.

Check it out! Incredible!  I'm so humbled by these folks!

And, Sherry, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. I do hope DataKind hosts another DataDive in Chicago so I can participate.

I can't stop thinking about the e-chat yesterday with Jake Porway.  He and DataKind are ONE of a kind as far as vision and "walking the walk" go.

I'm really inspired to get involved and to have certain charities that are near and dear to my heart submit proposals.

Jake's observation about "getting the organizations to hone in on the questions they need answered, not the data they have" was beyond brilliant.  Insights like that just don't come along every day!

What a great way to maximize the value of not only contributions but the volunteer efforts of individuals. By better understanding best practices, these organizations will have greater abilities to do good.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
