I am not sure how i feel about sequence analysis companies marketing to clients the fact their infrastructure is based "in the cloud". Would a surgeon brag about renting an operating room?

It's because "snail mailing hard drives back and forth" isn't as catchy a buzz phrase.

Headline: Decade-old Sweave limitation removed in 5 minutes.
+Yihui Xie is doing some great things with knitr.

The inability to hide chunks dynamically was always a big annoyance with Sweave, especially with figures. Yes, there were LaTeX hacks, and other weavers, but knitr offers a real solution using traditional syntax. All it took was me asking for it.

Below is a toy example, but you can see the possibilities in terms of developing truly dynamic reproducible reports:



\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

<<setup,echo=FALSE>>=
dothis<-c(FALSE,TRUE,TRUE)
showthis<-c(FALSE,FALSE,TRUE)
@

<<dontdothis,echo=showthis[1],eval=dothis[1]>>=
print("I am not even doing this!")
@

<<dothis,echo=showthis[2],eval=dothis[2]>>=
print("I am doing this!")
@

<<showandtell,echo=showthis[3],eval=dothis[3]>>=
print("I am doing this and showing you how!")
@
\end{document}

+Yihui Xie is doing awesome work. I love this package. It won't be long before Sweave is completely replaced by knitr.

A few gotchas about eval and echo is that there are really four or five arguments that control display; eval, echo, message, and error, and results. For setup blocks I like to also have message=F for loading packages. This is slightly different and better than Sweave.

i really like Girke's group. They have the best Bioconductor cookbook.

PhillyR meeting tomorrow night:
Investigating 100 years of dialect history.
For 40 years, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania's Linguistics Lab have been interviewing every day Philadelphians. Recently, we have been engaged in a project to take this catalogue of interviews, which mostly exists on reel-to-reel magnetic tape,and apply modern technological advancements in audio processing to generate a large and rich data set of dialect information. We have used R at many stages of the process from the acoustic analysis (using the python package rpy2), to the data refinement and manipulation, to data visualization, to statistical analysis of the results. I'll discuss the role R played, and show you some examples of language change in motion.

I had a secret plan to get baseball statistician Bill James (who lives in KS) in for a presentation, but he uses Excel!

This seems like something that would sound logical to venture capitalists but not to actual core facility managers. I would like to hear what other think.

Frankly I have some doubts as well - mostly because I see just how many ways can something go wrong and the more profit oriented the interaction the less likely is that people will trust one another enough. I wish it worked though.

another reaction to my "Big-Ass Servers™ and the myths of clusters in bioinformatics" post - so many hits on that post and only a fraction were from people looking for big asses.

This training ride goes up to Ambler. The breaks are determined by a couple crucial traffic lights. There are some decent rollers but nothing the fat guys can't power over. For some reason the finale does not tackle the Manayunk Wall (I suppose this would be too obvious), but instead parades down Main and then onto West River Drive where they launch a 35mph sprint among the unsuspecting toddlers and rollerbladers who frequent this closed-access oasis.

I walked into this place in search of a mailbox to prevent UPS from leaving packages on my front porch. The lady working the front desk was all mumbling and resentful - typical philly retail behavior. They wanted $300/yr for a frikkin mailbox.
