downloading folders from google drive.

I wanted to download some course material on RL shared by the author via Google drive using the command line.  I got a bunch of stuff using wget a folder in google drive was a challenge. I looked it up in SO which gave me a hint but no solution. I installed gdown using pip and then used: gdown --folder --continue if there are more than 50 files you need to use --remaining-ok and only get the first 50. In such a case its best to download using the folder using the UI and decompress locally. Decompressing from the command line created errors related to unicode but using the mac UI I decompressed without a glitch.

Organizational challenges for the cult(ure) of analytics

All things data 2015 Last month I had the fortune to attend "All thing data 2015" Conference in Tel-Aviv. The turnout was impressive and despite a stiff entrance fee, almost a thousand people come to learn from a lineup of local and international "experts" on Web Analytics. The crowd was a mix of consultants, sophisticated digital media buyers, analytics instructors and numerous web analysts from newly established startups and from more established companies all unified by an appreciation of their vested interest in monitoring their web presence. Organizational challenges While structural variation are not uncommon the ability derive decisions from data remains a major challenge of firms. One of the first talks was given by Mr. Zvika Jerbi who is a consultant working for SWC. Coming from an academic background he lectured the audience on the organizational challenges of implementing a culture of analytics in more traditional business setting
