Remember at the October meeting when I said, "We won't have a December meetup." Well, I lied. It turns out that Drew Conway will be in town and he was congenial enough to offer to give an R presentation. I have not nailed him down on the exact topic which he'll be speaking on. But since Drew recently released an R package for accessing the Infochimps API, I'm hopeful that he'll give us some insight into accessing Infochimps with R.
As you know, the Chicago R User group has a tradition of not having only one speaker. I'm currently recruiting other presenters. So if you have an interest in presenting, please contact me directly.
Some background info on Drew and his latest R package:

I hope to see you at Orbitz!
