I have noticed Python appearing in various news stories lately and 
treated as a mainstream language, as one not needing explanation, just 
like Java, etc.

is a nice tutorial on how to use Python (and PyCurl to access and process Twitter's new 
(still in development) streaming API. It starts with the equivalent of 
helloworld and elaborates from there. I think the examples nicely show 
off Python's readability.
