Python Journal new issue 2(2) is out and about at pythonjournal.cognizor.com
with articles and a fairly detailed digest of the content of the 4 very full 
days of the 2002 Python10 conference.   Focus in the articles of this issue 
is on deepening understanding of how python works -- recursion, PySpy.

First -- The pythonista thinks about repeating functions: Alternative
recursion methods with iteration splitoff auxiliaries, having different oopses
and efficiencies. Then -- Inspect your own pet python's looping and leaping.
In realtime! Tutorial on Malcolmson's PySpy shows what documentation ;)
looks like inside out, how basic program structures including recursion
vs. iteration really slither along. Screenshots, congeners  (and cf.

PySpy's 5th generation architecture mixes several programming languages like
many of the python10 works.  Expand to the level you want, then watch the
changing of your 
variables and function calls as python proceeds along its train of
thought.... With 
its introspection, PySpy teases us with the possibility of python 
consciousness.  Great study tool.
