@Noreen, well there you go! I see he included a quote from Google's Hal Varian, who told the McKinsey Quarterly in 2009 that statisticians would be the "sexy job in the next ten years." Guess he nailed it!

And remember Mike Driscoll, a data scientist and entrepreneur, who wrote in "The Three Sexy Skills of Data Geeks": "...with the Age of Data upon us, those who can model, munge, and visually communicate data — call us statisticians or data geeks — are a hot commodity."

Well you know, many statisticians are data scientists, and Harvard Business Review did declare data scientist as the sexiest job of the 21st century...
