Today is election day in the United States.  Here are the winners from a
much simpler yet equally non-scientific selection process:

    The Python Consortium is started!  Hewlett-Packard and LLNL provides
    the marquee status and the big bucks, Digital Creations the wildly
    successful application, Interet quietly chips in, along with Foretec
    Seminars, the first organization that had a check in hand!

    Michel Pelletier (of Digital Creations) and Dan York (of LinuxCare)
    announce that they are writing a Zope book for O'Reilly and Associates:

    Jan Walter announces some scripts for Blender, a computer graphics
    rendering tool, with very nice pictures to boot:

    David S. Harrison puts forth code which formats number for human
    consumption:

    Scot Hacker explains how good scripting BeOS is

    Tim Peters sort of sorts out some of the sort issues sorted out
    between 1.5.1 and 1.5.2:

    The same Tim accounts for a surprising 'feature' involving testing
    the object identity of immutable objects which puzzled Pearu
    Peterson and yours truly:
