Cycling had always been a passion but last year I decided to take it to the "the next level". Mark was recommended to me by a friend who had achieved great results due to his personal training programmes. As a result of Mark's superb training I've managed to dramatically increase my power output and now feel prepared to take on organised races next year.
Quality Excellent

We truly live in a data rich age, and incredible insights are just waiting for us to discover.

Here's a incredible collection of visualizations based on GPS data. Lines in the first one shows unpublished transportation of dead bodies. The second pizza delivery persons took one friday night in Manhattan. The third shows beef exports leaving America and the incoming 86 billon in food imports.

Pretty cool.

There are a whole bunch of other ones here, including wind power, the electricity grid (the US is still right heavy), the supremely heart breaking (and brilliantly visualized) job losses, and more: http://zqi.bo.lt/jbbtw

Analytics or Testing: what comes first?

I think this dilema is in the minds of a lot of people... Should I try to find insights on +Google Analytics to optimize my website right away, or should I just start testing? 

I believe that the answer to the question differs radically between two segments: companies that are new to analytics and testing & companies that are veteran conversion optimizers. In this article I go over these two segments and what I would recommend as the best way of action for each.

Interesting article from +mashable http://goo.gl/prupm about #advertising on Google. My feeling is why not advertise your own products

Wow. No surprise though sadly. More importantly are there now a load of riders in 2nd place with smiles on their faces?
 
USADA to strip Lance Armstrong of 7 Tour de France titles, ban him from cycling for life

+The Associated Press reports that U.S. Anti-Doping Agency chief executive Travis Tygart says the agency will ban Lance Armstrong from cycling for life and strip him of his seven Tour de France titles for doping.

Armstrong on Thursday night dropped any further challenges to USADA's allegations that he took performance-enhancing drugs to win cycling's premier event from 1999-2005.

Armstrong says USADA doesn't have the authority to vacate his Tour titles. However, Tygart told The Associated Press that USADA can do it.
