The present and future of the R blogosphere (~7 minute video from useR2011)

This is (roughly) the lightning talk I gave in useR2011. If you are a reader of R-bloggers.com then this talk is not likely to tell you anything new. However, if you have a friend, college or student who is a new useRs of R, this talk will offer him a decent introduction to what the R Read more...

I hereby release all of the content and code in the R stuff category under the cc-by-sa copyright license. You can do…

A dubious statistics

Following a link on R-bloggers, I ended up on this page (with a completely useless graph that only contained the pieces of information 5% in 1900 and 55% in 2000). The author (Ralph Keeney) reports on “A remarkable 55 percent of deaths for people age 15 to 64 can be attributed to decisions with readily

The information below will be periodically updated at the folowing permanent link: http://www.backsidesmack.com/r-resources/ Searching for information on R sucks. Not only is the language name a letter of the alphabet (an ignominy it shares with C and some less well known languages), there is Pearson’s r and the coefficient of determination, R squared! if you…

R-ecap [-16]

This morning, I noticed that none of my R related posts had appeared on R-bloggers for the past fortnight… After investigating, this was caused by…cut-and-paste! Indeed, when advertising about the special issue of TOMACS Arnaud Doucet and I edit about Monte Carlo methods in Statistics, I copied the main parts from the pdf announcement, straight

R-bloggers for other languages – wanna join?

Hello everyone. Recently I’ve been toying with the idea of extending R-bloggers to other languages then English.  After running some checks, I believe it is possible to do (under a sub website inside R-bloggers.com), where people would be able to follow R content on a “language category” of their choosing. Such a project could help map out all the...

About 10 months ago, I was looking for a plugin to enable me to highlight R code on my self hosted WordPress blog. The solution I came up with then was to use the wp-syntax plugin (with the need for some modifications). Today I was informed of (what I believe is) a better WordPress plugin
