Hi Folks

I just joined the list the other day, and intend to try to come along  
to Berts (my old hunting ground) for one of the next meetings, but I  
was interest to see this.   As it happens, data analysis in python is  
exactly what I do most of the time.   If anyone's interested, there is  
some sketchy information about my analysis software, Miró, at http://stochasticsolutions.com/miro.html 
.   Although it's not open source, and is used for some fairly serious  
commercial work (despite still technically being in beta), there's no  
fixed commercial model, and in the right circumstances it can be  
available free.

Anyway, I'm interested that data analysis is interesting to some of  
the Edinburgh pythonistas.   All the more reason to come along next
