In the October OpenBI Forum, we had the good fortune of introducing our DM Review audience to Gary King, David Florence Professor of Government and Director of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) at Harvard University, for the first in a series of three interview columns. Gary's charter was to begin educating the readership in the area of quantitative social science (QSS) methods and how they relate to BI.

This column continues to highlight methods developed in the social sciences which, I believe, are very pertinent to day-to-day BI concerns, with an emphasis on Gary's own research. The final column in this series, to come in a winter month, will focus on exciting technology developments for a worldwide launch at IQSS of what will be called the Dataverse Network.
