Speaking of signs of a healthy project: don't forget to mention the fact 
that many of the sessions at PyData will likely use the ipython notebook 
as a teaching tool.  I know that will be the case for the two tutorials 
I'm preparing on matplotlib and scikit-learn.

While we're on the subject, I want to say a huge thank-you to all the 
folks who have worked on the notebook project.  It's an incredible 
contribution to the scientific python community.
