Day 233 of 1000
Kelly told me about a website called fivethirtyeight.com a long time ago. It came to my attention a couple days ago. It is written by a statistics guy who used to be into baseball statistics, but decided to apply his skills to elections. The upshot is that he was so good, the NY Times hired him to blog for them. It inspired us to get back in the saddle and start studying the R programming language again. We decided we would study a half an hour per night, but we had to figure out how to do it when I am Charlotte while Kelly is still back in Raleigh. We decided to try to do it by sharing our desktop via Skype. It was amazingly effective. Hopefully, we will be able to start posting some interesting statistical graphics from our investigations. It is very, very interesting.
