Instead of a real post, I'll just point to the Siemens/SK65 and be done with it. It's August, and there are no real news anyway, just a lot of noise.

Yeah, it's Monday. And, by the way, Python semantics for nested dictionaries and regular expressions suck, and it's not just because it's Monday - as far as I can understand, they've sucked for a long while now.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, allow me to point out that this is a neat resource for folk with formal programming training who want to get to grips with Python at all levels (I came across it while investigating nested dictionaries, and while not having found what I wanted there, I was struck by its readability and coherence).

Oh, and another thing I stumbled across today: BSCW lives on. Around a decade ago, I saw this emerge as part of the Eurescom work I was involved in (in those early days, the field was called CSCW, and I really should write a bit about that).

Ten years later, we're still trying to figure out how to do collaborative work via the Net, and the best we can come up with is IM.

Ah well. Let's wait until Tuesday settles in...
