ETL functionality with Ruby via Goldmine

Something Nate Hopkins has been working on. Here is a snippet from the doc:

Goldmine allows you to apply pivot table logic to any list for powerful data mining capabilities.

In the nomenclature of Goldmine, we call this digging for data. So we've added a dig method to Array.

More reasons to love it

* Provides ETL like functionality... but simple and elegant
* Supports method chaining for deep data mining
* Handles values that are lists themselves
* Allows you to name your pivots 
* What does this all mean for you? Lets have a look.
