Data Mining OK Cupid

OK Cupid is one of my ‘holy grail’ datasets. There’s so much interesting data about what we do there.

I recently needed a dataset to test a hypothesis that OK Cupid would be perfect for, so I cobbled this together.

I got a great start from Andrew Matteson.

If this helps you out, let me know!

P.S.  Please read the OKCupid ToS very closely and make sure your use case isn’t breaking those rules.

 

 

I have a blog!

Yes, so, uh, hello world, and all that.

This is a first post on my brand new shiny blog.  Hi everyone.

While this blog is new, I’m not so new to blogging.   I’ve been writing over at iron-path.blogspot.com for a few years on eating, athletics, triathlon, and other such nonsense.   But, this blog is for my non-athletic life.   Honestly, most of what you’re going to find here will be ‘Data Science’ stuff.  But, I don’t want to paint myself into a corner with that.   So, you might also find things about me, bikes, wine making, or who knows what else here.
