I am a marketing/business intelligence professional that just finished the Data Analysis course. Want you to know that the material was amazing and I learned a bunch. Thank you Jeffrey Leek!
Ditto the huge thank you, Jeffrey! Just listened to the Course Wrap up Podcast with Roger - and totally agree that the exposure of all of us at various levels to each other was extremely important and satisfying. Really felt great when and MD, PhD statistician for 30 years (collapsing a few profiles there) had either the same trouble I was having or even better - trouble with a question I had solved in a heartbeat! Then the graciousness of help from others for the ones we just couldn't wrap our heads around revealed the real value of the message boards. And you are right, the naive perspective phenomena is truly worth working to keep in there.
I really think it would be valuable to do the class again, incorporating the reproducibility component if you can (there has to be a way...), some of the other insights you gained, and keeping the level of difficulty. I know a lot of us hope you do it.
Great course, going to do the stats boot camp.
And Loving the Witten sister's research.
