What to start learning?

If I were beginning in the IT field today, I would probably move in the direction of becoming a data scientist.  Many of my current students have expressed interest in also moving in this direction, so it behooves me to begin to map out a course of study to improve my credibility as a nascent data scientist.  How to get there?  Well, one likely approach is to map out a course of study at Khan Academy.

New Year Resolution (not!)

Taking some time between classes to do a skills assessment, and to decide which technologies to investigate anew (and to continue to investigate). Trying to approach this task systematically, although I'm not sure what exact system to apply at this point!

This is certainly a daunting undertaking, and my initial approach is to "just do it", hoping that out of my madness an effective method will emerge!
