Yona could answer best regarding his original idea. R is certainly in the
scope of our new numeric-computing group (link in Gabor's message below).
For starters, I'd be glad if someone volunteers to do some kind of "intro
to R" talk.

Certainly some companies use R for daily work. I do not know how to measure
the interest, but once the numeric-compuing group starts rolling, we can
ask around and get a better idea.
Until then (and always) you are welcome to join in.

Thanks Gabor!
