Welcome to JayCordes.com


Hi, I'm Jay.  I'm a data wonk who loves him some geek stuff.  I've also got a mean triangle choke and write electronic music that's begging for a video game that's worthy of it. However, I spend most of my time as a data analyst / software developer who has used his data science powers for good (most recently, designing and conducting experiments for DomainSponsor) and evil (turning $50 into >$30k playing online poker).

But enough about me!  This site is about sharing data analysis tips for the "reality-based community", comedy gold and updates for the geek-based community, and cat pictures for the cat-based community.



The reason the Internet exists.

Data Science


The art of extracting knowledge

from data.

Allow me to share my obsessions...



Poker, Backgammon, and Chess.  

Who are the top humans

and who are the top machines?

Geek culture


Sci-Fi movies, Game of Thrones,

scientists, and electronic music.  

How can anyone not love this stuff?
