What would you like to do?
import numpy as np
import pylab as pl
x = np.random.uniform(1, 100, 1000)
y = np.log(x) + np.random.normal(0, .3, 1000)
pl.scatter(x, y, s=1, label="log(x) with noise")
pl.plot(np.arange(1, 100), np.log(np.arange(1, 100)), c="b", label="log(x) true function")
pl.ylabel("f(x) = log(x)")
pl.title("A Basic Log Function")

Thanks for all the nice blog posts.
