comment Using the API for data analysis?
Thanks Kevin. So if I don't exceed the 10,000 requests per day (with a key) and don't repeatedly hit the same page I should be ok. Even if I go ahead and cycle through every page of the same method once (e.g. download all users). Out of curiousity: if someone makes a successful iphone app, I presume that will exceed 10k a day. Will each instance of that app somehow have its own key?

That's a bummer because there's no easy way to automate pulling/loading the torrent file into R. So if this isn't kosher, then this rules out easy analysis of SO data by a major community of sophisticated users.
