The goal here is to make Python better known and to counter some of the prevalent myths. One way to accomplish this goal is to publish literate technical articles with real content including performance measurements and pointers to the code. Perhaps Guido could be a real-life N. Bourbaki and co-publish with developers.
A significant issue is: where to publish. Certainly publishing in the technical society journals (ACM & IEEE CS) would make sense. Software Practice and Experience would also be good. Likewise DDJ and Game Developer Magazine. But I suspect that much of our target audience will be missed if we limit ourselves to these journals. We also need to get articles placed in the mass market computer mags. And we need to build an editorial relationship with the mass market journals so that when X says they think "Python is slow" there's some they know they can call for a truth-squad quote.
And, parenthetically, I continue to be amazed at the number of projects that use Python, but do it in stealth-mode and view it as their silver-bullet and competative edge. I wish more people would publish their experience.
