Sunday Data/Statistics Link Roundup (9/9/12)

Not necessarily statistics related, but pretty appropriate now that the school year is starting. Here is a little introduction to “how to google” (via Andrew J.). Being able to “just google it” and find answers for oneself without having to resort to asking folks is maybe the #1 most useful skill as a statistician.  A really nice presentation on interactive graphics with the googleVis package. I think one of the most interesting things about the presentation is that it was built with markdown/knitr/slidy (see slide 53).
