A Sample Web Scraper

Update 09/2013

I decided to make this into a repo containing all of the scrapers I've used at some point.

What is all this about?

These are web scraping code snippets which use the excellent lxml and Requests libraries. Some of them are cool, some of them are a simple introduction, but they all give data.

This exploration of data analysis was sparked by http://schoolofdata.org/ and I'm thinking up ways of how awesome this is going to be when used with Django.
