Business Information and Social Science Statistics

I thought readers might be interested in an interview I did with DM Review, a widely read publication in the business world, focusing on what they call "business intelligence, analytics, and data warehousing," which is something close to what we social science statistical analysis -- including programs, open source software like R, statistical methods, informatics, etc. They are very interested in what we do, as more sophisticated methods can probably help them a great deal, and the business world certainly has some terrific data sets that would help out what we do. The interview also covers some of the ongoing research at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.

If you're interested, see Open BI Forum Goes to Harvard ("BI" is jargon for "business intelligence").
