As I had mentioned, I hope to do something on PyGeo.
The creation of PyGeo as an adventure in self-education? Maybe trying to
explore the concept of self-education itself - and Python, and Open Source
and Google. What would it take to more actively help people to learn to
learn with these kinds of never-before-available kind of resources.
PyGeo, more simply, as something of potential interest to folks involved in/
interested in Python and Education?
Some combination, probably.
Right now I'm swamped trying to make ends meet - like many of us I'm sure.
But I have to believe there will be a break in the action that will allow me
to put together a proposal sometime between now and 12/1.
Not sure I'm the right personality type to help with planning. What kind of
planning do you think is involved, beyond soliciting proposals?
For best effect, I think that the solicitation might be a little pro-active.
That is, actually contacting folks who have interesting stuff out there, and
encouraging them to propose. Rather than leaving it to a general
Is that appropriate?
