  1. This is not exactly fresh (it was written back in March), but it's the first
    time I saw it and I thought I'd share. Barry Warsaw, one of the lead Python

    experiences.

    I also like the term "yak shaving", and I suspect I'll be using that for
    future such endeavors. Of which there are a fair number in my line of work.
