Interview with "New Scientist" on research and education

I kind of have a hard time with journalists cracking jokes about my last name - “Datta loves data”. But well, the interview in this special issue of the “New Scientist” did turn out very nice.

In the interview, you can

  • get to know some background information on why I ended up doing research on online streaming,
  • learn why I think that a combination of pre-recorded web casts and live streams will help you to teach better,
  • reflect on how principles of reproducible science can help you to conduct better research, and
  • get convinced that researchers need to be legally allowed to conduct web scraping.

Herewith, I’m sharing links to the English (read, download) and Dutch (lezen, downloaden) edition!
