Quantitative data analysis like that done in I Quant NY is a 21st century way of looking at government oversight. The analysis is excellent here. The only problem is that the presentation is locked into the blog format. What’s being built is a tumblr blog of episodic, narrative storytelling. You just can’t scale that format to create enough oversight to generate a working business model and go full time doing oversight this way. The sharp mind behind this vehicle is worth keeping an eye on and hopefully he finds a better way to present his findings.
