Nate Silver's 538 Reinvented

Nate Silver made a name for himself predicting elections with incredible accuracy at his blog fivethirtyeight.com, owned by The New York Times. But now, instead of applying his statistical analysis to Obamacare, he's been busy readying his blog for its next incarnation, under the ownership of ESPN, and hiring a whole new team.

What does he want the new FiveThirtyEight to be? "I want a source that I can go to that I can trust to take a complicated issue where a log of data is involved," Silver said. "Fivethirtyeight is my home for that."
