Starting Coursera course on R, computing for data analysis

First impressions:

  • Online lecture classes are just as boring as in-person lecture classes.  That’s after about 40 min.
  • An interesting question pops up: R core group… the people behind the curtain.  How does open-source make money for owners of S+?
  • Have to learn to not make references to actual date if going to repeat use videos (Peng at one point says “this year” referring to 2012)
