Datavore Consulting was a short-lived business venture by a few friends (Travis Hinkelman, Ben Nolting, Caroline Hinkelman, Tony Mong) with a shared love of math, programming, and ecology. We have decided to focus on our primary careers, but Travis and Ben will continue to blog under the Datavore Consulting banner.
