Visualization of Reading Level Frequency by Congressional Bill Stage

  Here's a fun example of how you might use my data on Congressional bill length and complexity.  Imagine you want to understand the empirical distribution of Flesch-Kincaid reading level for Congressional bills and how this distribution is related to bill stage.  A first step might be to visualize this relationship.   Based on this

Natty Narwhal on the Precision M4600

Since there are always questions of support for newly released models, I thought I'd put up a post on Natty Narwhal on the new Dell Precision M4600.  I got mine last week and have just finished replicating my M4500 setup on it. The only issue I've run into is for my Quadro.  NV claims that

R Bloggers: The Site I Wish Existed in 2007

  My first experience with R was in 2007 as a sophomore in undergrad.  As part of a larger project on pricing day-ahead electricity futures, I wanted to cluster locational marginal price (LMP) data from the ISO-NE.  Something like k-means is easy to plot and visualize in low-dimensions, but this data was better approached by hierarchical methods.

Most Contacted HBGary Emails and Domains

 You may have heard about the recently leaked presentation on combating Wikileaks that was produced by employees of HBGary Federal, Palantir Tech, and Berico Tech.  You may have also heard that Anonymous retaliated against HB Gary Federal for threatening to release their identities.  I thought it would be interesting to run some analysis of the email networks
