I am Shaun McGirr, and StickyData is the name of my (future) consulting business.

It doesn’t exist yet. There’s no concrete timeline, but I do know what success looks like: when people who want to achieve remarkable things with data come to me for advice, and I make it happen.

To that end, this site collects my thinking, writing and doing, and the best of what I find elsewhere.

If you want to know the one best machine-learning algorithm for all cases, you may not be my target audience.

Here are some things I care about and strive for, to help you decide: transparency, credibility, repeatability, obsolescence.
