We launched a new set of Public Datasets on BigQuery featuring the City by the Bay: San Francisco!

It includes SFPD incidents, SFFD service callouts, 311 complaints, street trees, and Bay Area Bike Share rides and stations -- all updated daily.

Learn where not to park your car, the "best" place for your house to catch fire, and lots, lots more.

How the big search company lets you use their computers to do your own stuff

Inspired by XKCD's "Thing Explainer", here’s the Google Cloud Platform described with just the 1,000 most commonly used words.

Google’s Cloud Platform: Described without… help from marketing

Sadly, the Wikipedia entry for GCP is garbage, and while the official docs are pretty good, the marketing-dust sprinkled on them gives me a toothache.

For my own reference, I pulled together an objective description for each of the services available on GCP. Thought they might be useful, so here they are.

What are the GCP Services?

I'm working on a theory that you can predict the next up-and-coming area of New York City by analyzing where there are more rat complaints, but not more rats.

Check out this #TILwBQ post where I import and analyze public data on NYC rats using #BigQuery.
