Norman Matloff professor of computer science at UC Davis, and founding member of the UCD Dept. of Statistics has begun posting as Mad(Data)Scientist. (You may know Norm from his book, The Art of R Programming: NSP, 2011.) In his second post (out today) on the new R package, freqparcoord, that he wrote with Yinkang Xie, Norm looks into outliers in baseball data.
