I'm a geek in need of a spare-time project. I love metafilter, and numbers can make me kinda giddy at times, so the infodump sounds like a great place to start. Plus, this pony
reminded me that I've been meaning to do something for a while. I just lack ideas.

So, is there anything you think I should do with the infodump (programmatically speaking!) that hasn't already been done? I have mad php and mysql skillz, my css and js are passable, but I'm hoping to use this an an excuse to finally really learn python and maybe even have demonstrable publicly available code to show to future employers (I'll put everything on github). I also have a ton of other skills that might be useful, but you don't need my resume.
I'm not promising to get anything done in a timely fashion or even at all, but every good thing starts from an idea...
