I've been asked to write a short column about Numpy and my web site in
IEEE AP, for the Educational Corner.  I still consider myself a Numpy
neophyte, but perhaps thats the beauty of Python, being able to do neat
things without being an expert.  I am pondering what to write about on
the Numpy side.  I am soliciting any genious ideas for topics :)  The
first thing I thought of is that I just plain enjoy being able to tweek
code without worrying about compilers.  Second, the code ends up so much
more readable than Fortran or C.  Thirdly, vectorizing the ported code
makes it look much more like the mathematical basis of the program.
Lastly, I think its the perfect language for students learning
algorithms.  I'm open to any ideas.  Thanks,  Rob.
