Over the past several years, I've noticed that the Python community tends
to fail to market Python effectively to the wider software development
world.  Partially as a result of this, Python's potential to replace other
less-productive languages remains under-appreciated by most developers.

Since I'm co-founder of a company that depends in part on growth of
the Python users base, I find myself needing to find better ways to
sell Python the language, as well as products that are based on it.

This led me to create a new mailing list for those that are interested
in the generic problem of marketing Python more widely:

I don't know if this will be fruitful but perhaps this will lead to some
useful insights or mutually beneficial contact between those that want to
help Python expand further into the mainstream.
