Looks interesting. There's a pretty good review here: http://exploringdatablog.blogspot.com/2012/12/data-science-data-analysis-r-and-python.html

I was disappointed to hear the book doesn't explore Python more, if only because it seems to be the path I'm personally going to go down and it is very important to a large portion of the data analysis field. Given that the book is seeking to teach statisticians and data analysts material that their colleagues who came from computer science typically had more formal introductions to, using a more general programming language than R would have been helpful for at least some examples.

I may actually share on here again since the update brought native link sharing to iOS. I'm surprised I heard nothing about this major update, but perhaps it just signifies how slow/dead Plus is.

So my question is, should I come back to posting on here? To a of folks seem to follow me all the time even though I'm inactive. If I get enough interest (7+ real people) I'll share here again.

To get a sense of what I might post, you can look at how I've experimented with Tumblr.

This is an excellent description of how I would use VAM.
