Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Jul 17)
 
QOTW: "Alas, Python has extensive libraries and [is] well documented
to boot." - Edmond Dantes

"Locking files is a complex business." - Sybren Stuvel

effbot explains exemaker. Yes, it *is* easy to supply
a runnable Python or Python-based application on a
memory stick:

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.

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.

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.
