An awesome alternative to D3.js - R’s svgAnnotation package. Here’s the paper in JSS.

How to run R on your Android device. This is very cool - can’t wait to start running simulations on my Nexus S.
About this blog: We’ll be posting ideas we find interesting, contributing to discussion of science/popular writing, linking to articles that inspire us, and sharing advice with up-and-coming statisticians.
Why “Simply Statistics”: We needed a title. Plus, we like the idea of using simple statistics to solve real, important problems. We aren’t fans of unnecessary complication - that just leads to lies, damn lies and something else.
