Let’s (briefly) revisit the Nobel API

It’s always nice when 12-month old code runs without a hitch. Not sure why this did not become a Github repo first time around, but now it is: my RMarkdown code to generate a report using data from the Nobel Prize API.

Now you too can generate a “gee, it’s all old white men” chart as seen in The EconomistGreying of the Nobel laureates, BBC NewsWhy are Nobel Prize winners getting older? and no doubt, many other outlets every year including me at RPubs, updated from 2015. As for myself, perhaps I should be offering my services to news outlets instead of publishing on blogs and obscure web platforms :)
