I'm referring to data mining of the block chain.

There's a wealth of information here that is interesting and valuable for various reasons.  For monitoring the health of the network, testing economic theory, tracking controlling parties, doing psychological studies, optimizing trading strategies, etc.  There are other threads that ask this but I'm going to ask again if people can recommend some good open source tools for getting into this field of research.  I am considering starting with the ABE codebase, are there any other good places to look?  Thanks - -

I've never seen this in action (couldn't get it to work), but I'd be interested to know whether it helps: https://github.com/dirtyfilthy/bitten

I would definitely +1 the ABE database.  Great example of how to work directly with the blockchain, even if not all of it is very useful to you.

Thanks for your replies.  I am starting work on an offline gui w/tools for blockchain analysis, but I'm not exactly sure what kind of use it will have as of yet.  If I come up with something useful, I post here. 
Keep up the good work coiners -    hashman
