统计学数据集、软件StatLib (archive of statistical datasets and software at Carnegie Mellon University)
StatLib, a system for distributing statistical software, datasets, and information by electronic mail, FTP and WWW.
StatLib was founded in April of 1989 by Mike Meyer (firstname.lastname@example.org), a then Senior Research Scientist, in the Department of Statistics, at Carnegie Mellon University. StatLib started out as an e-mail service (and some of the organization still reflects that heritage). By 1995, StatLib had grown to a collection of about 150 Mbytes and the StatLib server was servicing about 60,000 transactions per month. In the summer of 1998 Mike left Carnegie Mellon and Pittsburgh for Seattle. He left StatLib behind him to Pantelis Vlachos.
Pantelis Vlachos (email@example.com) is a Research Scientist, in the Department of Statistics, at Carnegie Mellon. He took over StatLib from Mike in June of 1998 and kept it virtually unchanged for 3 years. In that period, StatLib, grew by more than 2 Gbytes in size, and received several thousands of hits per day. The growth in size and demand prompted the first major change in StatLib during the post-Meyer era, the conversion to a content management system to service more efficiently the Statistics Community. Using scripting tools like PHP and technology like MySQL, StatLib is turning a page and moving into the 21st century ready to serve the demands of its users and contributors.
