I don't know if you've worked with large data sets (whatever that is) but the rest of the requirements seem tailor-made for you, Ben. What an opportunity, are you going to try out for it?

It's really tempting, but I think I may have shot myself in the foot already. I worked for them last year as a part-time fight analyzer & was not nearly as productive as I should have been.

Wow, I might apply for that. I was a math major in college, with a physics minor and have 9 hours of Java programming behind that.

Plus, been watching MMA for about 10 years.

Tempting, but WDC, I would just be closer to a bunch of assholes.

Right up my alley. I'm already a computer scientist for the FAA and I have MMA knowledge. I wonder how much it pays.

Go for it Ben! Best of luck to you.
If you get the job and need someone to help out on those UFC trips, let me know.
