That sounds fine.. I think having a link to a high profile user of
python would be very useful though. I agree the XP link is a bit shite.
Hopefully we'd get the photos and links to success
stories/events/software changing every now and again..

how about

1) High profile user of Python
2) Link to upcoming python event
3) Link to web development uses of python

the only problem is

1) people will argue over which user of python to put up
2) This will probably just be pycon and europython.. which is no bad
thing.. until we get more than two conferences at similar times.. which
one should we show?
3) python isn't just about web development..

Suffice it to say we'll have some content and the example images will
change every now and again.

btw do you have a problem with using nasa or astrazeneca as example high
profile users?
