wonginstagramWelcome to Notes on Doing, conversations with people who love what they do.

Our next NODcast episode goes to Sam Wong. Sam is a data scientist who works for the New York City MTA transit system.

Here’s what Sam had to say about how data works when it comes to moving around over 5.6 million riders per weekday, his call to public service, and how no decision-making process is complete without taking both numbers AND emotions into account.
