Sometimes it's hard to see yourself from the outside. I'm looking over the blog (especially the PySpotting hoo-ha), and I'm surprised to see how much here is about Python.
Truth be told, I'm not a Python-über-alles fanatic. In my day job, I write C++ for an embedded device. [Insert obligatory corporate disclaimer here]. I've successfully proven that it's possible to run a Python interpreter on said device, but you know what? Not gonna happen here... not when the footprint of the language runtime is half the footprint of the OS. When I do crank out some Python at work, it's something like a script to automate a build or test process, which runs on my workstation.
So, no, in my world, Python isn't going to prevent tsunamis, root out the terrorists, and usher in a new age of global eudaemonia.
What it has become is the "uppermost tool" in my development toolbox. When I need to try something to see if it could possibly work, when I need to automate some annoying computer task, or when I just want to hack for the sake of hacking, I usually grab Python first.
