Well, I had never heard about it, but this morning I was looking for some information about another package and I found and article about this interesting package at 'The R-Journal' (http://journal.r-project.org/), it was on the Vol. 8/2, October 2008, by Yihui Xie and Xiaoyue Cheng, and it says something like...

The Non-parametric Bootstrap as a Bayesian Model

The non-parametric bootstrap was my first love. I was lost in a muddy swamp of zs, ts and ps when I first saw her. Conceptually beautiful, simple to implement, easy to understand (I thought back then, at least). And when she whispered in my ear, “I make no assumptions regarding the underlying distribution”, I was in love. This love...

Interactive pivot tables with R

I love interactive pivot tables. That is the number one reason why I keep using spreadsheet software. The ability to look at data quickly in lots of different ways, without a single line of code helps me to get an understanding of the data really fast...

We were looking for a different type of visualization for a project at work this past week and my thoughts immediately gravitated towards streamgraphs. The TLDR on streamgraphs is they they are generalized versions of stacked area graphs with free baselines across the x axis. They are somewhat controversial but have a “draw you in”

Mapping IPv4 Address (with Hilbert curves) in R

While there’s an unholy affinity in the infosec commuinty with slapping IPv4 addresses onto a world map, that isn’t the only way to spatially visualize IP addresses. A better approach (when tabluation with bar charts, tables or other standard visualization techniques won’t do) is to map IPv4 addresses into Hilbert space-filling curve. You can get a good feel...

The National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) is part of the National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine, and most well-known for hosting Pubmed, the go-to search engine for biomedical literature - every (Medline-indexed) publication goes up there. On a separate but related note, one thing I’m constantly looking to do is get DOIs for papers on...

A Letter of Recommendation for Nan Xiao

I hope my letter could boost this guy up like: I'm not sure if I'm a good observer, but time and time again I feel some people are undervalued, or they were not given better opportunities to show their value. Not surprisingly, I know quite a few such people in the Chinese R/stats community, mainly because of the...
