    If I can find a space in Brooklyn downtown, how many of you can make it? It is only about 10-15 minutes away by subway if you are leaving from Times Square.

    Any word on location yet?

      Still looking for a space. Any chance your firm can let us use your conference room during 7-9pm?

      Sorry, I wouldn't be able to get a conference room at my firm. Hope you can find something soon!

    As a follow-up to this class, I would suggest a class on plotting various data types (nominal, ordinal, numerical, proportions, date-time, alone and in combination) with the old and ugly R graphics package, ready with R out of the box - no need to suffer installing manually 20 other packages in the correct order to get ggplot2 to work. This should appeal to people new to R, especially non-technical data artists and social scientists, and those who often work on other people's computers, such as tutors and consultants. Who's interested?
