86 Helpful Tools for the Data Professional PLUS 45 Bonus Tools

I have been working on this (mostly) annotated collection of tools and articles that I believe would be of help to both the data dabbler and professional.

Included is a list of tools, such as programming languages and web-based utilities, data mining resources, some prominent organizations in the field, repositories where you can play with data, events you may want to attend and important articles you should take a look at. The second segment of the list includes a number of art and design resources the infographic designers might like including color palette generators and image searches. There are also some invisible web resources (if you’re looking for something on Google and not finding it) and metadata resources so you can appropriately curate your data.

How to Evade Government Surveillance and Stay Anonymous Online

In today’s society there are people and automated devices that are recording your deepest, most private thoughts and activities. Each day we voluntarily divulge the most intimate details of our lives through social networking accounts, email, banking apps, online games and more.

Thanks to software emulation, there’s no need for original hardware any more – though many do still insist on using classic technology for their musical needs. This will be a two-part guide, with hardware, samples and VSTs coming next week.
