For a subsite aimed at businesses, business.python.org is obvious and 
easily remembered.  Not all businesses are corporations.  'about' and 'why' 
are not specific at all.

I think such a subsite, linked from the main site also, would be a good 
idea.  It should explain both why (including success stories) and how 
(including employment/contracting) to use Python in business.  Pieces could 
come from the existing site.

I think the mere existence of such a site would constitute a message to 
businesses that Python is ready for business.  I suspect the existence of 
even a skeletal site would attract contributions to build it further.

Correspondingly, perhaps there should also be a
science(or scitech or learning).python.org with pages on Astronomy, 
Bioscience, Chemistry, Mathematics, Education, etc.  Perhaps the scipy and 
other science application groups would help.

With two subsites for the main application areas, this would leave 
www.python.org to focus on the language itself.
