California wine is wine made in the U.S. state of California. Nearly three-quarters the size of France, California accounts for nearly 90 percent of entire American wine production. The production in California alone is one third larger than that of Australia. If California were a separate country, it would be the world's fourth-largest wine producer. Can you imagine how big the California wine industry is? The following infographic will tell you, I am sure you will know better after reading it.

Tell us a little background info about yourself. Where are you from? What’s your education background?

I was born on the edge of a wheat field in the Empty Quarter.  I made my way to Seattle for university where I received a PhD in statistics (with an emphasis on computing and a smattering of economics).  Much later I moved to London.

In graduate school one of my office mates was Robert Gentleman, who would a few years later be half of the team that originated R.

How long have you been using the R language and to what extent? What are the main reasons you choose to run analysis in R rather than other languages?

I first touched R in the early 90's when Robert came around with it on his laptop.  However I didn't seriously make the switch from S-PLUS to R until I started Burns Statistics in 2002.

A big reason I use R is because I used to be a developer of S-PLUS (R's sibling) and so I'm naturally fluent in R.
