Political Math is written by an individual with far too much free time on his hands. This blog is primarily a suppliment to the YouTube channel 10000Pennies, which shows data visualizations on political topics.
The problem with the videos is that, if every tiny calculation were shown in the videos, they would be boring. However, I don’t want it to look like I’m trying to hide the data. The beauty of what I do is that the data is free for anyone to look at… the only problem is that only a few people really look at it and even fewer people understand it. So this blog is in place to get into the details for those who are either curious or skeptical.
As for me (this is an “About” page, after all), I posted my first video on a lark (seen here) & got the opportunity to, visit Washington DC, meet with Senators, speak at think tanks and conventions. This condition was thankfully temporary.
My normal job is as a software developer focused on machine learning with an hobbyist interest in genetics. I have no desire to work in politics or media in any capacity. This is strictly a hobby for me.
