Yes, Mark Pilgrim wrote this originally for Python 2, and it was one of
the best even then. The revised edition for Python 3 is highly
recommended.

You're right, it is still a good tutorial.

Unfortunately, the primary author has disappeared
<URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Pilgrim#.22Disappearance.22_from_the_Internet>.

Fortunately, the work is free software, so every recipient already has
full permission to improve it and share the result.

Does anyone know of an active project maintaining this great resource
and releasing newer versions?
