This can vary case by case, but a few online retailers are taking creative approaches to this step. Online fashion retailer Zafu shows how to encourage the customer to partic‐ ipate in this collection process. Plenty of websites sell designer denim, but for many women, high-end jeans are the one item of clothing they never buy online because it’s hard to find the right pair without trying them on. Zafu’s approach is not to send their customers directly to the clothes, but to begin by asking a series of simple questions about the customers’ body type, how well their other jeans fit, and their fashion preferences.

What we would really like to do is emulate the experience of Mark Johnson, CEO of Zite, who gave a perfect example of what a customer’s recommendation experience should be like in a recent TOC talk. He went into Strand bookstore in New York City and asked for a book similar to Toni Mor‐ rison’s Beloved. The girl behind the counter recommended William Faulkner’s Absolom Absolom. On Amazon, the top results for a similar query leads to another book by Toni Morrison and several books by well-known female authors of color.

Instead of being data driven, we can now let the data drive us. Suppose we wanted to get from San Francisco to the Strata 2012 Con‐ ference in Santa Clara. We could just build a simple model of distance / speed-limit to predict arrival time with little more than a ruler and a road map. If we want a more sophisticated system, we can build an‐ other model for traffic congestion and yet another model to forecast weather conditions and their effect on the safest maximum speed. There are plenty of cool challenges in building these models, but by themselves, they do not take us to our destination.
