OMMA What Do You Want It To Be

OMMA Groupies, er OMMA Metrics & Measurement MC Judah Phillips, opened the show up with an improbable bit of humor.

"I'd like to start with a joke," Phillips, whose day job is senior director of global site analytics at Monster Worldwide, said, setting up a bit about an "analytics and research team" that was recruiting a new analyst. Three candidates came in for the interview: One with a degree in math, another with a degree in marketing science and analytics, and a third with a degree in statistics.

The hiring team asked each candidate one question: "What's one third plus two thirds?"

The mathematician answered, "One."

The marketing science/analyst candidate answered, "0.99999."

The statistician, and punchline of the set-up, answered, "What do you want it to be?"
