“We’re never going to have enough true data scientists out there,” Baer said.

With all of the skills required for data scientists, it still comes down to analytics.

“The core of data science is still the analytics, the ability to create and work with predictive models, to really pull out meaningful predictions, and get business value out of the data,” Flugel said.

Looks like a store within a store - just got this for my daughter.  Free for install, with one "appisode", basically an app as DLC.  Then you can select from additional "appisodes" at $4.99 a pop.  Full featured game as far as I can with the only context being the Disney Junior brand.  I wonder if this is kosher for any developer or is Disney given special dispensation, because it looks like a way to create a branded store.  I like the model a whole lot, except the part where my daughters are bugging me for more "appisodes" :)
Get Disney Junior Appisodes on the App Store. See screenshots and ratings, and read customer reviews.

This is fine as long as Apple gets their 30%. This was actually talked about somewhat as part of iOS6's launch.

Yesterday I started my Senior Robotic Engineers on thinking about the FLL Nature's Fury challenges.  They need to decide on a natural disaster and think about how robotics could be used and then we build.  This should be fun.
