Greetings -- I'd like to present R to our university research group as  
a viable platform to do machine learning applications for human  
behavior modeling.  The actual research will be further specialized,  
but general activities -- acquiring/interfacing with the data,  
specifying/learning a model, detecting "mean" behaviors vs "outliers",  
and of course visualizing it all, are perfectly done using R base and  
add-on packages.  I'm thinking of sticking some timeseries data into a  
MySQL database ("real world"), extracting it into an R session, and  
showing things emphasizing R strengths.  Do folks have some similar  
sessions saved, and what would you recommend to do in just the 10  
minutes I'll have?  Especially an example of bedazzling graphics which  
can be produced from models of data, 3d, colorful, and rotatable with  
rgl! :)
