: Jarno: "Stop Promoting Python" was a joke talk. The premise was that promoting Python would lead to the existence of more Python programmers, which would impair the abililty of the preexisting Python programmers to charge high fees for their services. The conclusion was that Python programmers should contrive to keep Python a secret so as to mantain a competitive advantage relative to Java programmers. This, you'll recall, is the strategy that has worked so well for Lisp.
