It’s all about tools

The new ScraperWiki is all about tools. People talk a lot about data, big data, data mining, data science. But the action happens in tools. Tools like Excel, R, SPSS, Python. Or, on the new ScraperWiki, tools like View in a table, Summarise this data and Query with SQL.

We’ve just pushed an improvement to the ScraperWiki beta which puts all of your tools within closer reach. Each tool currently working on a dataset is shown in the black bar at the top, and you can scroll left to see or add more.
