[Edu-sig] Now I went and did it!

My recommendation is you keep the demo short and sweet and
put some attention into handouts which parents and/or
kids can take home and mull over at their leisure.
You could talk about what any good teching enviroment should
include: real time evaluation (a responsive command line
with no compile-link step).
Mention that because Python is free, many will be able to
use it at home at no cost.
Then point to the web and show that an education-oriented
culture is growing up around Python. If you won't have
internet during the demo, print a page or three for
inclusion in your handout.
