Check out my article on classification models in Java using #Weka in IBM's +developerworks! #datascience  
Get an overview of the Weka classification engine and learn how to create a simple classifier for programmatic use. Understand how to store and load models, manipulate them, and use them to evaluate data. Consider applications and implementation strategies suitable for the enterprise environment so you turn a collection of training data into a functioning model for real-time prediction.

"Von Braun was on there showing how to go to Mars -- and this was before Sputnik. And this was at a time when Mars was a hell of a lot more interesting than it is now. We thought there'd be animals there; we knew there were plants there; the colors change, right? But, you know, NASA screwed that up because they've sent these robots and they've landed it only in the deserts."
In this passionate talk, legendary spacecraft designer Burt Rutan lambasts the US government-funded space program for stagnating and asks entrepreneurs to pick up where NASA has left off.

Hello beautiful Google Plussers.  I am preparing a book proposal for a new book on numerical analysis in #r .  The proposal form requests a few potential referees who may not be contacted.  Before I start anointing assorted frenemies, would anyone in the #rstats  community be interested in volunteering?
