A breezy, informal, and ultimately shallow introduction to data mining. Although
it refers to a few 'case studies' (not case studies in a formal sense but
rather simply refers to situations in which data mining has been used), it does
not talk about any of them in sufficient detail to actually illustrate what data
mining is about. It takes less than five minutes to read the actual article,
but you could spend hours reading through all of the articles it links to. Some
of these articles are detailed discussions of data mining or statistical methods
related to data mining, some are links to companies that provide data mining
products, while others are more whimsical (Multiple Regression with Ren &
Stimpy).


As an actual introduction to data mining it is inadequate. As an introduction to
where you can get an introduction to data mining it is adequate.
