More context from the Math Forum:
-- back to my Coffee Shops Network idea, where you get bright LCDs but
not so much of that isolated "study carrel" approach, unless you rent
one of the private rooms, like at CubeSpace.
I don't want to just focus on outreach to children, when it comes to
Pythonic Math. What might we offer to busy adults, in addition to
Safari, Showmedo, Python 411, Python.org itself?
I wonder if PSF is aware of many "Python commercials" in the pipeline.
Ruby seems more aggressive at self promotion.
What with Monty and scary snakes, we've certainly got a strong base to
play from, if wanting to advertise.
