Data, Data Everywhere

Apparently data is where it's at. An article published in the New York Times claimed that being a statistician will be the "it" career in ten years. As it is now those who have the gift of data analysis make $125,000 on average.

I can't help but feel that I've missed the boat. My most painful class during my last semester was all about analyzing data for media use. Granted I sucked at everything that it entailed, I completely wrote statistics off as a viable career, not just for me, but at all. More power to those who have a gift for numbers, but it isn't me.
