Avinash Kaushik channels Donald Rumsfeld on Big Data

For me, one of the highlights of the Strata conference last week was Avinash Kaushik. I first met Avinash a few years ago and he’s one of my favorite people to be around. He has a knack for saying something to clearly, and yet in such a human way, it’s inspiring.

At Jumpstart, for example, he likened Analytics that credit the first action with the eventual conversion to “giving my first girlfriend all the credit for me marrying my wife.”

Avinash is a sought-after speaker, and he seldom records his keynotes. His mainstays appearance at Strata is a rare exception. So please enjoy the ball of lucid chaos that is Avinash.

And if you liked this, you should probably buy a ticket to Strata New York, happening this fall, or attend some of the online conferences O’Reilly runs. Check out the Strata website for details.
