I agree with Martin "R Graph Gallery" has a lot of neat stuff.

I also think there should be a on CRAN website a list of "R websites". And in a perfect world one of the search engines scope would get extended to search them all.

This is really a cool website for R users. He'd get my number one vote for "R website of the year"!
