As editor of most of the current set of success stories, I should note 
that I am no longer collecting new stories.  It takes a lot of time 
because they are usually submitted in a form that requires a lot of 
extra editing and interviewing.  I also think Python is past the point 
where it needs this.  We've moved into the mainstream now in many 
business sectors, where in the past the showcased companies were 
isolated cases.

Of course I don't mind in the least if others disagree and want to 
continue with this.  The official home of these used to be 
pythonology.org but I think they should now be considered at home on 
python.org.  The authors and companies involved gave permissions for web 
and print use (with the exception of Philips, Test&Go, and Eric 
Raymond's story which did not allow print use).  I have documentation of 
all this that I will hand over to the PSF in some form.
