two simple demos:

The first one is a simple client server thingy on the LAN.
I have seen hardened people do a double take
when they see how little code it takes to set up a server
and a client.

The second is in the same vein - use the xmlrpc demo from
the docs to do a simple remote call. In this also do a deliberate
mistake, and show them how the remote exception pops up

And the third of the two would be the mrs premise demo from the
shared memory stuff shm in which two independent processes
happily share a piece of ram...
