"R is a non-procedural language developed expressly for big data that is being parallel processed"

Really?

Duncan, I had a similar reaction to that line. I suspect it came from me talking to the reporter about SAS as a procedural language unlike R, which I guess is where the "non-procedural" part came from. And I talked about big data and parallel processing in the context of Revolution R Enterprise (which wasn't mentioned in the article). Sadly I didn't have the opportunity to review the article before it was published.
