Summary
Python used in Finnish art installation.

A Google alert on "Python" found this for me: MobilLenin.
More to J├╝rgen than just a programming language, Python is a small, easy to use tool that sparks creativity. Python allows him "to rapidly prototype artistic ideas, opening up opportunities for rich experiences on a smartphone." And yes, MobiLenin is partly made with Python.

'Nuff said.

Great example indeedee. Imho mobile phones (or any mobile terminal) is where python can really shine. I've been using Nokia's 'python for series 60' implementation for quite a while now and can see there is no alternative that can match it. If only Nokia backed it up a little more and the python community at large understood the major opportunity to evangalize Python, can Python really blossom. Why is the Python version of the 'hello world' example not an application that runs on a mobile terminal? Why focus on PCs? Boring! :) The fact that the prediction for India alone are 5 million PCs against 70 million mobile phones is a giant (road)sign on the wall as far as I'm concerned.

Groets,

I've been using python in various projects of befriended artists. One was writing a heart-rate monitor for the newly-created "ChessBoxing"-sport. It has been created by the dutch artist Iepe Te Rubingh. More information here:

The coding is done with pygame, tkinter & pyserial.

Python is a real sweet.
http://www.python.org is the home
of Python. But when you connect to
it, it's like nothing is on the way...
Old bug corrections, etc... But no
fresh news about what's going on, what
will be done soon (and when). As if Python
was a dead language since the 2.4 release...
Is there nothing exciting for the new Python?
When will it be there?? Talk about it..
Please, do something ! Shake'em up!
I love Python, I want to go on loving it,
I don't want to move to Ruby (arg)

You're looking in the wrong place. Try comp.lang.python.
