Today’s the last day to vote in the Turing Test

The answers go up tomorrow, so whip people to take a look at the Christian round and turn in guesses by midnight tonight.  If you’re sending it around or posting to your blog, encourage people to start with number thirteen and work backwards.  There was a lot of attrition.

Meanwhile, I’m recovering from Blogathon in the best possible way… a full day lecture on data analysis and visualization by Tufte!  (He’s the author of The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, for which my affection may well cross over into idolatry.)

Err, let me say now that the Turing charts tomorrow will not match Tufte’s standard, as I’ll be making them in Excel tonight.  I don’t want to delay the results and there’s something different coming on the blog this Monday that I really want to get to.

So here’s my promise: I want to refresh  and expand my knowledge of R this summer, so, by the end of August, you’ll get redesigned graphics for this year’s Turing Test plus some discussion of why they’ll be better.

Because you’re all here for the stat-tagged posts, right?

  • Well, I am. Can’t speak for the rest of your readership, though.

    Leah, FYI #12 and #13 aren’t included in the list of links for the Christian responses. Maybe that’s why there are fewer votes for those ones.
