    This is so interesting. Does donor's choose frequently pull insights from activity on the platform?

      As of a few weeks ago, when we brought on a bad-ass Data Scientist, YES. One of his first projects is identifying the technology devices that teachers think are most effective--as expressed by the classroom projects they're posting on DonorsChoose.org. And then we'll see how that differs from the technology purchasing decisions of the powers that be. Excited to post the findings on GOOD!

        Hell yea, my man. This is super. Eager to see what comes. And I'm switching analytics to data science from a titling perspective going forward.

          Data Science isn't quite just analytics by another name. It's a bit of a fuzzy concept, but generally about a different way of starting to dig into these complex systems to make sense of them. Here's a decent perspective, with a few good links: http://www.quora.com/What-is-data-science
