And, we're live! 

We formally launched the DataKind UK today, DataKind's first international branch, dedicated to empowering a data-driven non-profit/charity sector. 

You can read more about us here, in my piece for the Guardian, or follow us on Twitter at @datakindUK.

Boston friends: Software Carpentry is running a bootcamp June 24-25 for women in science, engineering, medicine. All instructors / mentors are women, as well. Absolutely awesome, if you ask me.

This (and the Guardian piece linked) is so delightfully sweet and odd that it makes my heart melt. On closeness, matching outfits and the pink flamingo.

Using your Facebook activity to predict obesity prevalence. Future of public health data (or at least a new sort to consider ...)?

In honor of Shakespeare's birthday, I give you the Shakespeare insult generator.

Favorite so far: "O, [thou art] as tedious as a tired horse, a railing wife, Worse than a smoky house."
