Hello Ross and All,

I was also accepted into GSoC for this year to work on SciPy, and I
thought I'd continue this as an introductions thread.  My name is
Skipper Seabold, and I'm a PhD student in economics at American
University in DC.

I will be working on providing a consistent user interface and
development framework for statistical models in SciPy.  At the request
of GSoC I will be maintaining a blog about the project, you can learn
more and follow the progress of my work at

I also idle on freenode as jseabold.

Looking forward to the summer and beyond!
