data generation

How to generate meaningful fake data for learning, experimentation and teaching

The Problem There’s one thing about R that a lot of people have as their Top-of-Mind. That’s the black-and-white plot of iris dataset which is definitely a huge boring view of R. That’s boring because of aesthetics but also because it’s such a cliched example used over and over again. The other problem is finding the right set of dataset for the right set of problem you want to teach/learn/experiment.
