Awesome website for #rstats Mining Twitter using R

Just came across this very awesome website.

Did you know there were six kinds of wordclouds in R.

(giggles like a little boy)


Simple Wordcloud

Comparison Wordcloud

About Currently, I’m a postdoc in Rasmus Nielsen’s Lab in the Center for Theoretical Evolutionary Genomics at the University of California, Berkeley. I’m also collaborating with the Biology Scholars Program (BSP) at UC Berkeley, and I am affiliated to the Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment (PRHE) at UC San Francisco. In my (scarce) free time outside the academic world, I often work on collaborative projects for marketing analytics, statistical consulting, and statistical advising in general.

JSS launches special edition for GUI for #Rstats

I love GUIs (graphical user interfaces)- they might be TCL/TK based or GTK based or even QT based. As a researcher they help me with faster coding, as a consultant they help with faster transition of projects from startup to handover stage  and as an R  instructor helps me get people to learn R faster.

I wish Python had some GUIs though 😉
