Very interesting! 2 highlights (with wink-wink nudge-nudge relevance to 
Chandler):
- at the very beginning of Part 1: the host of the show mentioned 
PyLucene "made by Mitch Kapor folks at OSAF" as "a genius invention"... 
Nice!... :)
- at the very end of Part 2: when asked about a GUI toolkit, Guido 
recommended... wxPython!... He also mentioned that it's not perfect but 
that that's a very very difficult project to undertake. So, here you go.

The rest (2 hours...) on the history of Python and how the community 
grew is also very interesting of course... :)

Thanks Bear for the link.

Cheers,
- Philippe
