37-Year-Old Mom Spent Seven Days Online as an 11-Year-Old Girl

  • We’re staring at a photo of fictitious 11-year-old Bailey, and no matter how many times we do this, the results are still unnerving.
  • She was only 12 years old, and this man was grooming her through her school email account, coercing her to send videos of herself performing sexual acts.
  • Brian and I are also the bridge between the team and law enforcement, with regular meetings and status updates, making sure we’re always working within not only their parameters, but those of the prosecuting attorneys.
  • By the end of two-and-a-half hours, I’ve had seven video calls, ignored another two dozen of them, text-chatted with 17 men (some who had messaged her before, gearing back up in hopes for more interaction), and seen the genitalia of 11 of those.

Tradeoffs: The Currency of Decision Making

  • If you feel like you’re always behind on some area of your life, it’s probably a sign to reconsider tradeoffs.
  • We often end up allocating our time, and other scarce resources like money, by default, not in the way that gets us what we want.
  • One of the most important areas where we need to pay attention to tradeoffs is when we make decisions.
  • We’d all agree that we’d rather devote our time to activities we value, yet we can end up not acting that way out of habit or obligation or simply because we haven’t considered what we’re forgoing.
  • Multitasking as a way of getting more out of our time without making tradeoffs doesn’t work.
  • When we actively choose which tradeoffs we want to make, we can feel much better about it than when we’re forced to let things slide.

Be Yourself: The Data Scientists You See In Public Are Not Representative

  • You don’t have to be ANYTHING like those people.
  • While these people are definitely awesome and can sometimes be an inspiration, they’re also standing atop unknowable intersections of luck, opportunity, and survivorship bias.
  • As data scientists, we’re supposed to be experts at understanding things like sampling, and hidden bias lurking in our data sets.
  • The vast majority of people who work in data don’t live and breathe the stuff constantly.
  • But despite not doing ANY of these things, these people will provide useful insights to their organizations, engineer robust systems, run experiments, and do important work.
  • While we often hear about imposter syndrome, how the very people we admire feel skeptical that they’re worthy of the admiration they get, we hear less about just where the bar is before it’s acceptable to consider yourself part of this great community.
