    is just as future-proof as any other format." - Sybren Stuvel

    "Submitting a proposed change or fix [of the Python docs] is easier and
    quicker than arguing about it on c.l.py and it seems to get pretty quickly
    to the actual document maintainers." - Kent Johnson

    An interview with Michael Foord, author of MovablePython, is the
    latest entry in the Python411 series intended to help you learn
    Python and learn about Python:

    Once you learn about the secret of iter()'s second parameter,
    many use cases of a while-loop in C can be better expressed with
    a for-loop in Python:

    Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
    these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    http://www.python.org
    Notice especially the master FAQ
    http://www.python.org/doc/FAQ.html

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    http://www.pythonware.com/daily
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
    http://www.awaretek.com/nowak/mygale.html
    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    For far, FAR more Python reading than any one mind should
    absorb, much of it quite interesting, several pages index
    much of the universe of Pybloggers.

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
    sure to scan this newsgroup weekly.

    Steve Bethard, Tim Lesher, and Tony Meyer continue the marvelous
    tradition early borne by Andrew Kuchling, Michael Hudson and Brett
    Cannon of intelligently summarizing action on the python-dev mailing
    list once every other week.

    The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

    The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
    to all sorts of Python resources.

    Python Success Stories--from air-traffic control to on-line

    The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python
    Consortium as an independent nexus of activity. It has official
    responsibility for Python's development and maintenance.

    Among the ways you can support PSF is with a donation.

    The online Python Journal is posted at pythonjournal.cognizor.com.
    and
    welcome submission of material that helps people's understanding
    of Python use, and offer Web presentation of your work.

    del.icio.us presents an intriguing approach to reference commentary.
    It already aggregates quite a bit of Python intelligence.

    Thanks for the correction--and thanks to those who relocated this
    part of Pythonia away from well-meaning-but-oh-so-fallible SFistan.
