Two Shiny Ideas

Idea One: not in July, but in some upcoming month, if there is room on the schedule and people are interested, I could do a talk about Shiny, the package from RStudio that essentially turns R into a web-scripting language allowing you to quickly create slick web-apps capable of doing anything R is capable of doing.

Idea Two: I thought of a statistics game. A referee (and eventually an automated script) generates datasets simulated using all kinds of models. Maybe a new one every week or so. People submit their parameter estimates, confidence intervals, test statistics, and the code they used to get their results. All datasets will have at least one parameter for which the null hypothesis is true. The actual parameters and model used to generate the data are revealed for each contest after the submissions are closed. Over time users accumulate scores for various criteria-- coverage probability, false positives, false negatives, distance from true parameter value, model specification, AIC, and who knows what else. Maybe, the fraction of their code submissions that run successfully in a batch environment? The reason this is a Shiny idea is that the data can be served from a Shiny app, and submissions can be uploaded and scored by the same app. What do people think?
