I'd like to do a little poking around with the questions/answers/users of the site to date. Where would I go to get the information for GFH?
I've started playing with the Stack Exchange API and believe it can meet your needs. I'm working in python and using stackpy. Like any api, it's not ideal for a generic data dump since I believe you'd have to iterate thru each instance of each data type. It probably works better if you have a particular function you'd like to perform because then filters and api functions could do alot of the work for you.
