■ Cognitive scientists (psychologists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, philosophers, etc.).

■ Persons receptive to new types of software applications  (CIOs. seeking mission support software; people who use -or could use - data tables for analyzing....well, anything; technical writers, technical magazines, software reviewers, etc).

■ Entrepreneurs (software publishers, application developers, venture  capitalists, angels, etc.).

This is an invitation to the first 2 groups above to review, then critique, an innovative mind-centered analytic methodology for data discovery in data tables, also evidence marshaling. Automated permutation, and much more, help the user perceive both desired and unexpected information in the varied arrangements of parameter values on the table; and the shifting order of items on the table supports development of alternate hypotheses regarding sequences. The software is a cognitive tool used to shape and reshape, in real time, the imaged data to reflect the users reasoning. A cognitive scientist wrote this about the process, "...the genius of your methodology."
