What is a Data Gorilla?

Data Gorilla (noun) - a Data Monkey that has grown up and learned to use power tools.

This particular data gorilla uses a lot of windage, common sense and "let's ask what they really meant by this" calls as data power tools, with backup from SAS, R, C++, C, Python, perl, and whatever else is handy. Done previously in contexts of climate research, consumer modeling, behavioral forecasting, machine learning, error analysis, and plain old sanity checks.
