R on TV

June 10, 2010

Had a fun day today in a TV studio for Fox Business News, where Revolution CEO Norman Nie was giving an interview to Liz Claman at Fox Business Network. As you might expect, the interview focused a lot more on the business side than on technical capabilities of Revolution R, but there was some good discussion of the impacts of statistical analysis.

The producers did mix up Norman’s background a bit though: as much as I’d like to say that I work with a billionaire, it wasn’t Norman that sold SPSS to IBM (that happened about a year after he left). Also, the interviewer inferred that Norman was bringing technology from SPSS to Revolution, when (as Norman pointed out in the interview) Revolution R is built on the open-source R project instead. Nonetheless, it’s great to see some national exposure for R.
