Last Thursday I had the pleasure to attend the Tokyo R user group meeting. And what a fun meeting it was! Over 40 R users had come together in central Tokyo. Yohei Sato, who organises the meetings, allowed me to talk a little about the recent developments of the googleVis package.

Thankfully all talks were given in English:

Following the meeting the user group had booked a pub around the corner for a few drinks and some food. Brilliant!

Delicious chicken steaks and rice porridge

The next morning, as I woke up in on the 23rd floor of hotel in Shinjuku I felt that my bed was moving. I am sure it was the earthquake, but what a weird feeling it was with a little hangover.
