[Comments] (12) : Hey, how are you doing? The thing I've been working on for the past month is a chapter for a book. The book's about beginning programming in Python, and the chapter's about web applications and web services. I tried to write the chapter that would have turned me into a super-prescient web application genius if I'd read it in 1997, when I first started writing CGIs. Actually, most of my writing is messages to myself that come far too late to help me, but might help you.

So (the first draft of) that's done, and now I have to deal with all the personal stuff that's been piling up, but maybe this could be a new, not-very-lucrative career for me. It was pretty fun to write, except for the deadline panic, and I was able to write a lot more than I thought I could.

For the past month, I've been explaining to friends that Leonard couldn't come to social events because of a Secret Project. This is it.

Great. Now I'm going to have to learn Python so I can read your chapter.

Posted by Brendan at Wed Mar 02 2005 11:01

Steve, I plan on doing the same thing... by reading all the chapters before Leonard's.

Posted by Leonard at Wed Mar 02 2005 11:42

That will work pretty well, since my chapter is second-to-last.

Awesome news!

Beginning Python

Yeah, that's the one. Hey, there's my name!

Posted by Susie at Wed Mar 02 2005 13:29

Haha, I knew the secret. Not that I understood it...

Posted by Alyson at Wed Mar 02 2005 14:16

That's amazing, Leonard!

I wish I had the willpower to say no to social events to work on a "secret project". You could write "for dummies" book. I bet you could do a better job than the guy who wrote the Access for dummies book.
