It's finally here. I'm not talking about Thanksgiving, I'm talking about the single greatest weekend of college football in the state of Oklahoma: Bedlam. The contest pits the state's two largest universities, Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma, against each other on the...

Two weeks ago, I shared "TCU @ Oklahoma State by the Numbers." TCU had a solid advantage over OSU in most statistical categories leading into that game, yet OSU defied the numbers and came out with a convincing win. Last week, OSU scraped out a hard-fought win on the road at Iowa State...

What’s not to love about dinosaurs? Their size, their teeth, their mystery – they still capture my imagination just as they did when I was six years old and coloring a Stegosaurus in a coloring book. What did they look like? What color were they?...

TC15 is rapidly approaching, and roughly 12,000 attendees are expected at the festivities. The vast majority of those attendees will be flying into Las Vegas, and there will be plenty that don’t travel very often. They may find themselves on the plane wondering what the proper etiquette is...

Quantified self visualizations predominantly focus on daytime activity, not sleep habits. Perhaps this is because it’s one of the most difficult things to accurately measure, or maybe it doesn’t seem like an interesting data set. But, anyone with a newborn in the house knows how...

The annual Tableau Conference (formerly known as TCC) is one of my favorite parts about working at InterWorks and being a part of the Tableau Community. I get to meet all sorts of new Tableau users and attend fascinating sessions and keynotes. Some of last...

Fantasy Football has become an incredible phenomenon in the United States. According to FSTA, over 56 million people will participate in some form of fantasy sports in 2015 with 73% playing fantasy football. I first started in 2007 as a means to socialize with coworkers at...

There’s been a lot of coverage of wildfires in the United States this year, particularly in the Pacific Northwest, where some of the largest fires are consuming hundreds of thousands of acres. To bring some context, I scraped data from the US Forest Service’s website...

Approximately 8.2 million people live within the five boroughs that make up New York City. Every year, thousands of accidents occur due to a multitude of contributing factors. NYPD collects information about each of those accidents and provides it for public use on nycopendata.socrata.com. We...

Over the last twenty years, video games have become a cultural force in America. From movie spin-offs to t-shirts at Target, it's almost impossible not to be touched by the gaming industry every day, even if you don't consider yourself a "gamer."  In this period...

Keeping track of the growing number and types of database products is a full-time chore. This week I spent a few days in Vail, Colorado at the Pacific Crest Global Technology Forum. This is the 17th year that Pacific Crest Securities has sponsored the event—bringing...

Earlier this year, a good friend of mine, who is responsible for me working at InterWorks, wrote a blog post about his personal weight loss journey and how he uses data to enhance his training efficiency. Brian's post really made an impact internally at InterWorks. We saw someone very...

When you think of Oklahoma, what comes to mind? Maybe you think of cowboys, farming, Native American culture or the oil and gas industry. All of those are common answers, but there’s something associated with Oklahoma’s identity more than anything else: tornados. This weather phenomenon definitely...

“Is an MBA worth the investment? The answer to this question is the standard MBA answer: It depends. The worth of an MBA depends on a variety of factors. Perhaps the most important of these is return on investment (ROI), which can vary greatly between MBA programs. Other key...

It’s “Action Month” at Tableau Public. Actions are one of my favorite Tableau features. They allow you to easily create interactive dashboards, and the community has used them in some very creative ways. Actions are the perfect example of what Tableau does best. They’re simple...

A powerful feature within Alteryx is the Download tool under the Connectors tab. It’s useful for pulling information down from the web. As the amount of data available on the web grows, the value of being able to pull information into a workable format in...

The recent floods in Texas and Oklahoma hit home for me. I live outside of Dallas and InterWorks has three offices in Oklahoma. We’ve seen double our normal rainfall this year, leading to major floods impacting metropolitan areas. People have lost homes and family members. All...

Every day, we are flooded with data visualizations. Whether it’s a bar chart in a newspaper, an infographic you see online or a pie chart you see in a quarterly earnings report, people are turning numbers into pictures all around us. For those of us...
