Hey Kyle

Right now I am working with the course-grained (1/sec) data sets from the
Mindwave.  They provide their eSense(tm) measurements as well as the
"eegPower", which seems to give a general overview of the different
brainwave levels in relation to each-other (but not much else).  This
actually works out really well, because you can dump the data to an org
table, and then as Nick said, use babel/calc/R to dow hat you need to do
with it.  There is a function inside of the data-gathering package that
handles that pretty nicely (albeit slowly) with calc.

Of course, this is all very course grained, but it is working nicely for
my current experiments!

My intention is to eventually connect to the lower level serial Neurosky
interface for the raw EEG wave data with emacs, and send the both the EEG
data and a timestamp straight to a file.  This might be a blind alley

The idea of quantified coding sounds awesome!  The question is, how does
one marry up a line of code, with a particular neurological state,
especially since a given line of code isn't a static entity that one can
easily refer to?
