Thinking in Python includes thinking about ordinary everyday things in Python.  It doesn't mean fantasizing about the guts of a Von Neumann architecture computer unless you really need that to be your knowledge domain i.e. that's your line of work.

Since posting the above some weeks back, I've been informed that "Von Neumann architecture computer" is maybe not the best jargon to be spreading around.  Source:  https://vimeo.com/145672920  about 4:55 into it.

I've watched quite a few of these Eric Smith vimeos.  I've learned a lot. 

Given I'm flying the lambda calculus banner on Mathfuture, trail-blazing a new track, it behooves me to catch up on what that means in more detail, Y combinator and all that. ;-D
