The start of a journey

This is the first entry in what I hope will become a blog looking at all the things I’m interested in — transportation (especially transit and walking), cities, demographics, maybe even a little economics and sport — through my favourite lenses; namely wordy texts and brightly coloured maps and charts.

The title is hopefully a decent pun; in addition to the basic statistical concepts of mean, median and mode to describe a population, I love thinking about mode choice; what drives people to take a certain mode of transportation.

The intent is to combine data, statistics, visualization and methodology to produce something useful for people who don’t want the dirty guts of how I came up with my results, and something fascinating for those who do.
