I'm studying economics, and teaching myself R and STATA along the way.
It's kinda messy, but I'm not doing to shabby. Here's some of my latest attempts at problem solving:
Q&A for people interested in statistics, machine learning, data analysis, data mining, and data visualization
Q&A for Ubuntu users and developers
Q&A for professional and enthusiast programmers
Q&A for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems
