The R User Conference 2013: Albacete, Spain

I was fortunate enough to attend the 2013 UseR! conference in Albacete, Spain this year. I had a great time meeting fellow R users and exchanging ideas on R implementations.

Do the Simpsons characters like each other?

One day, while I was walking around Cambridge, I had a random thought — how do the characters on the Simpsons feel about each other? It doesn’t take long to figure out how Homer feels about Flanders (hint: he doesn’t always like him), or how Burns feels about everyone, but how does Marge feel about Bart? ...
