Firstly - thanks for setting up the twitterbot David :-)

Rufus - i'm not sure what effect include upper/lower sidebar panels has on
site, but I wonder - should we maybe have a link in the sidebar along lines of
"Track new questions via [@dataquestions] "

I also wonder about whter we could/should syndicate a search on #getTheData in
a sidebar?

 I'll start looking at pulling together a google custom search engine as well.
As part of this, I wonder if there's a way we can mine all questions and
answers (possibly along with vote count) for links to external sites. This
could be used to seed a CSE that searches over sites and/or pages referenced
form q and a, and maybe even boost/tweak rankings based on the number of votes
received by a q or a?
