I mentioned this article during my workshop yesterday. It examines what people actually do when they do exploratory data analysis' (EDA). The answer i in the title: futzing and moseying. What that means is that, once they've collected the dat, they follow an informal and unstructured process of looking to see what's there. "A lot of putzing, a lot of trying to parse our text logs to see if I could find anything helpful… I don't know, just poking around with things and see what happens." This post is a summary of Futzing and moseying: interviews with professional data analysts on exploration practices Alspaugh et al., VAST'18.
