Emanuele, I would be very glad to see such a story written up. We can get it
onto the advocacy site as well as http://www.pythonology.org/python/success.
The science modules for Python are a real secret weapon for Python that needs
to have its story told.
We could also use your experience regarding some of the whitepapers. We have:
"Scientific Computing with Python"
"The Python Alternative to Matlab"
for which no one has volunteered to at least outline. Each of those has a
link from their title to a workspace for jotting down ideas of what to cover.
Those who lack the time/energy to write an entire paper are welcome to
suggest and critique the outlines.
I look forward to your success story and thanks for getting involved,
