Our labels: data scientist vs statisticians (or OR)

A perennial discussion of identities in the world of analytics is making the rounds on the blogs of statisticians. Or wait a second, what should we call them?
Data scientist is just a sexed up word for statistician

Data Scientists, Statisticians, Applied Mathematicians, Operational Researchers...jus to name a few, are the labels one might apply to themselves in the field of analytics. How shall we label ourselves? I can't agree more with Nate Silver,
"Just do good work and call yourself whatever you want."
