I thought Calvin loved Hobbes.

You're probably right about your being more mainstream in mathematics.  As I
make clear in my blog, I'm not even a math PhD wannabee, whereas I *am*
actively seeking to credential in American literature, as one of the chief
architects of the emerging Slayer mythology (Buffy, Serenity,... Ultimate

In other words, Fuller School business is leading me more in the direction
of science fiction, with mathematics a layer over that (they teach
Synergetics in Narnia, didn't ya know).  Python, both the logo and the
language, becomes a part of the armour plating (IronPython -- even better).
The Evil Empire is a thralldom of cube and server farms.  We want to help
free the drones to experience more tourism and nonviolent adventure.
