Last month, Amanda Cox from The New York Times Graphic Department gave a great talk to the NYC R Statistical Programming Meetup. I’ve just got around to uploading the video, which has been broken into a part one and part two. You can also view the videos embedded after the jump.

Amanda made use of a lot of web content, and we are not setup to do screen capturing, so the video is a bit more useful to listen to than to watch. Amanda’s talk was great, however, and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking of using R as an exploratory tool for professional data visualization.
