I'm giving a Tutorial at Pycon entitled:

"Scrape the Web: Strategies for programming websites that don't expect it"

It goes beyond mechanize+BeautifulSoup to include a discussion of Selenium 
Remote Control, which is the one fairly neat trick up my sleeve.

I haven't actually written the whole tutorial yet, but I should do that! 
I can give a modified version of it to BayPiggies in February so that I 
can get feedback to put into the version I'll give in March at PyCon. 
I've given similar talks at other venues in the past.

The tutorial is supposed to be three hours long; no need for my Baypiggies 
version to be that long. 
http://svn.asheesh.org/svn/public/20082009/pycon-proposal.rst is the 
proposal I sent to them, which y'all are welcome to peruse to find things 
I should focus on in a way-shorter Baypiggies version.

You'll feel much better once you've given up hope.
