Very interesting talk given at Stanford in April 2013 by DJ Patil, @dpatil, Data Scientist in Residence at Greylock partners and former Head of Data Products, Chief Scientist, and Chief Security Officer at LinkedIn.
He looks at what are the data products and what are lessons learned.
He explains Dan Ariely quote
