Baranowski on Python

The whuffie cycle is a quick on these days — within 12 hours of my post on Paul Baranowski’s Lessons Learned from Peekabooty (which appears on the main page of the Peekabooty site), Cory Doctorow at BoingBoing wrote a post, which in turn caught the attention of Slashdot. The end result: Paul got a deluge of email, all of it very supportive, and a lot of it asking: “Okay, if C++ and Java aren’t viable languages for development, what is?”

Paul’s answer: Python. He’s got a response to all those who asked, and it’s in this essay, What Language Do You Recommend?

(By the bye, I’m the one who got him hooked on it. Guido should get me to do publicity for him.)
