Positive Feedback

You know that screech that happens when the roadies have messed up the mike/speaker configuration? Positive feedback.

Well, the folks at DataMind have produced a ranking of Coursera stats-with-R offerings. I suppose it shouldn't be surprising that social networking is the number one course, since the ranking is based on Facebook and Twitter. One wonders whether Einstein could have produced two theories of relativity, which didn't even win him the Nobel (his work on the photoelectric effect), as well as a raft of others if he'd been of the self-absorbed generation?
