Since we are brainstorming, I'll throw this in.  How about a
digg/reddit/delicious style web site dedicated solely to python.  The
top rated stories would be used in the rss feed.  So you could
participate by voting or just by monitoring the rss feed of those
stories who were ranked highly by the community?  Then a community
could filter spam, give kudos to important news/stories/blog posts,
etc.   Most of the python web resources rely on a few people.  If the
burden could be shifted and dispersed it would probably be a good

As an example, there are quite a few python mail lists and blogs that
I would like to keep tabs on, but time doesn't permit.  However, if
there was a filtering method that would let the gems bubble up - I
would be able.  I would also be willing to rank messages and blog
posts that I do read to contribute back.

all pie in the sky right now - but an idea.
