The Guardian Goes Open
So, some newspapers do appear to "get" the open source phenomenon. I linked recently to Washington Port open source software and now in the UK a national daily newspaper has opened access to its content. Hooray for the Guardian! Though I think you'll find if you look at the top left that they have made a typographical error in their masthead
Nice to see a Python application advertising on the Open Platform site. [Edited after correction from Simon Willison] Of course the Open Platform application is in Java/Spring. The client-side application, however, is in Python. So that gives anyone who already knows Python (say, the growing army of Google App Engine programmers) a head start.
Get to it, Python tribe!
