Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

    Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
    center of Pythonia
    Notice especially the master FAQ

    PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
    marvelous daily python url
    Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
    World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
    While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
    are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
    their results.

    comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software.  Be
    sure to scan this newly-revitalized newsgroup at least weekly.

    Brett Cannon continues the marvelous tradition established by 
    Andrew Kuchling and Michael Hudson of intelligently summarizing
    action on the python-dev mailing list once every other week.

    The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

    The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
    to all sorts of Python resources.

    Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
    mailing lists

    The Python Business Forum "further[s] the interests of companies
    that base their business on ... Python."

    The Python Software Foundation has replaced the Python Consortium
    as an independent nexus of activity

    Cetus does much of the same

    The old Python "To-Do List" now lives principally in a
