George, Thank you for respecting the role of the data scientist and press,
and you will just have to live with spambots like we all do. J Brand

Good luck with everything Brand, I hope the distinction you're making works
for you.

 

Believe it or not, people know how to find me without your website enabling
spambots for my government email address.

George, Thanks for the suggestion, but I am not interested in submitting for
the following reasons:

 

As I said in your session last week, we speak a different language, to me it
is not about what one does to the data (technology), but what one does with
the data (science, statistics, and visualizations):

http://gov.aol.com/2012/06/06/health-datapalooza-a-model-of-innovation/

 

This morning Dr. Holdren suggested I work on the U.S.  - India Health
Initiative:

http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/06/192007.htm

 

Last week at the Health Datapalooza, Jonathan Gluck suggested I help Dr.
Merkin with more prizes:

ovation-investment/

 

Brand

 

P.S. I need to keep your email there so people contact you and not me about
your challenges.

Brand, 

 

Since you've already 'done' six of the seven challenges announced to evolve
and mature HHS health data and the healthdata.gov platform components, be
sure to submit your solutions via challenge.gov so that they will get
reviewed. 

 

I would really appreciate if your web site did not include my email address,
as this enables receiving spam at work. I'll ask you to please remove that. 

 

George

Todd Park: "I found at HHS that the best way to get a project done in
government is find the people that had that idea years ago and recruit them
to work for you."
