This blog was started about a year ago when I was thinking about going back into academia.  At the time, I was working at Slide, Inc. in San Francisco and was slowly morphing into an Excel (gasp!) junkie and losing touch with the statistics/R community at large (in terms of my work).  I wanted an outlet to show potential employers that I was still working on and thinking about statistics.  It turns out that I didn’t go back to academia and I am currently working at the National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden, CO.  I am really digging the work.

As you can see from the dates of the blog posts, I stopped blogging shortly after starting.  I recently went to the useR2010 conference at NIST and I decided to get back into this medium for sharing thoughts — no matter how far out they may be.  So I give you “The Log Cabin 2.0″…or maybe “The Log Cabin (beta)” with ‘alpha’ being the first incarnate.  We’ll see where it goes.

    Glad you got back into it!

    The post about parsing XML in R (vs. python) was extremely helpful. Also like the fact that you’re working with sports data– one of my particular interests.

    Look forward to more great work from you and the rest of the R-blogging community.
