I was recently
reminded that the wonderful team at warwick University made sure to put online many of the slides (and some videos) of talks from the recent useR 2011 conference. You can browse through the talks by going between the timetables (where it will be the most updated, if more slides will be added later), but I thought it might be more convenient for some of you to have the links to all the talks (with slides/videos) in one place.
I am grateful for all of the wonderful people who put their time in making such an amazing event (organizers, speakers, attendees), and also for the many speakers who made sure to share their talk/slides online for all of us to reference. I hope to see this open-slides trend will continue in the upcoming useR conferences…
Bellow are all the links:

This is (roughly) the lightning talk I gave in
useR2011. If you are a reader of R-bloggers.com then this talk is not likely to tell you anything new. However, if you have a friend, college or student who is a new useRs of R, this talk will offer him a decent introduction to what the R blogosphere is all about.
The talk is a call for people of the R community to participate more in reading, writing and interacting with blogs.
I was encouraged to record this talk per the request of Chel Hee Lee, so it may be used in the recent
useR conference in Korea (2011)
The talk (briefly) goes through:
The widespread influence of the R blogosphere What R bloggers write about How to encourage a blogger you enjoy reading to keep writing How to start your own R blog (just go to wordpress.com) Basic tips about writing a blog One advice about marketing your R blog ( add it to R-bloggers.com) And two thoughts about the future of R blogging (more bloggers and readers, and more interactive online visualization) VIDEO
My apologies for any of the glitches in my English. For more talks about R, you can visit
the R user groups blog. I hope more speakers from useR 2011 will consider uploading their talks online.
