Hi Brian,

Thanks for the free publicity :)

You're right - the notebook is killer for sharing examples (e.g.
http://nbviewer.ipython.org/gist/pelson/7772265)  and we're making pretty
heavy use of it. I'm also super keen to convert the cartopy gallery (
http://scitools.org.uk/cartopy/docs/latest/gallery.html) to be notebook
based - I think all the tools are available with IPython now, it's just a
case of joining them all together and applying a bit of Python glue.

Finally, a huge success story for me has been the course material that I've
been able to write with the notebook. It's still in a state of flux, but
I've been teaching introductions to numpy (3.5 hrs), matplotlib (3 hrs),
cartopy (0.5 hrs) and iris (6 hrs) to experienced weather/climate research
scientists using nothing but IPython notebook, and I've set up each of the
students with notebook environments for the class exercises. If anybody is
interested, the material is available on github (
https://github.com/SciTools/courses) and as an example, the Iris course can
be seen on nbviewer at

I've said it before, but I'll say it again - IPython notebook absolutely
rocks so thank you to everybody who has been involved in its conception and
