Marcus Beck has a nice (& relatively new) blog called R is My Friend. You can guess that his posts relate to the use of R.

I particularly liked his piece on the use of the XML package in R to mine data from the internet; and his post on using the integrate function in R, even when the anti derivative has no closed-form solution.

Grad. student readers will also like his post, How Long is the Average Dissertation.

My own take on a related question can be found here.
