Steve Miller has posted his interview with Revolution's CEO Norman Nie at Information Management blogs. In the interview, Steve digs into Norman's motivations for taking on a new venture around R after his successes with SPSS and how what he learned there applies to Revolution Computing. Also up for discussion: the benefits and challenges of an open-source business model; the relationship between academia and R; and how analytics can be relevant for a non-expert audience.
