wow, that is some cool statements. imagine if they actually believe and do those things. anyway, palantir is pretty cool.
now on to the thing that i beginning to love about them. check out this blog post: Palantir: so what is it you guys do?. there is too much in the blog post to summarize. but here are some interesting points.
WOW! this is the kind of stuff i have been thinking about for hackystat. we need some palantir approach to our hackystat analyses. this realization of sophistication is what makes analyses useful. information (the data) is meaningless if we don't understand it. to me, palantir is all about making meaning. that is a cool concept. they are insight providers.
so... i think hackystat could use several things:
i like the idea of a palantir approach to hackystat. hackystat provides information. a palantir approach to the analysis provides meaning. simple charts and tables or even fancy charts and tables just doesn't cut it.
palantir has an approach, i wonder if it will work. if it does, it will be the future of analysis.
