Hi Tanya,

Where is the ChiPy meeting this Thursday evening?  I checked the website,
but the location of the meeting had not yet been decided.

When I think of "big data analysis" I think of something like, "Okay, read
all these data from an Excel spreadsheet into a huge Python array or
matrix, and then construct various Q-Q plots to see if the data are
normally distributed, exponentially distributed or something else, and then
determine the parameters of the distribution".  In other words, when I hear
"big data" I'm really thinking of a mixture of statistics and computer
programming.  Is that correct or is my "definition" a little too narrow?
