Hello, World!

Welcome! Dataists.com is a collaborative blogging effort started by Hilary Mason and Vince Buffalo. Our goal is to bring well-written articles on big data processing, statistics and statistical programming, and machine learning to one place. There’s been a surge of collaborative effort across Twitter (i.e. with the #rstats hashtag), local data drinking groups and R user groups, hackathons, and StackOverflow; the next logical step is a collaborative data blog.

We still have some configuration to do with WordPress, so it may be a bit before we whip out posts more interesting than this introduction. In the meantime, there’s a lot of other great blogs out there!

cheers,
Hilary and Vince
