Looking for discussion about Python for prototyping

I had occasion to attend a meeting of IS/IT faculty in the business 
school at one of the local universities the other day. I would stress 
that these people offer courses and do research that is at the 
interface between business and technology. That is, they are not 
software experts.

At one point one of the faculty members mentioned VB as a 
language for prototyping in the context of eBusiness. To say the 
least, VB would not be my first choice! However, his remark has 
made me wonder what can be said about Python for prototyping 
purposes, especially in the context of process models like Boehm's 
spiral.

Could folks on this list possibly suggest some places where I might 
read good discussions about characterising languages, and the 
systems in which they are embedded, for prototyping?

Many thanks for any suggestions!

Bill
