What's the coolest thing you've done with Python?

It's not done yet, but I'm working on a simulation of supermarket checkout lanes to settle a bet with a friend - I predict that the "Trader Joe's" model (one line feeding to many cashiers) results in efficiency gains. He maintains that it doesn't. May the best (market) win! (There are other considerations, too -- labor, space in store, availability of express checkouts, etc. -- and I hope to model some of those as well.)

What would you like to learn in the Python world?

Moar. I'm a Python (and programming) novice, and hope to learn whatever I can. Specifically, though, I'd like to learn Python in a mapping/spatial analysis and data visualization context - ArcGIS toolboxes and geoprocessing, Numpy and other data-wrangling, and whatever various web modules would be required to interact with databases, servers, mapping APIs, etc.

Any particular areas of expertise outside of Python?

No answer yet

Introduction

I'm an urban planning student with interests in sustanability, livability and transportation. I've got a bit of Python under my belt, as well as some GIS, Javascript and HTML/CSS, and am looking forward to ++ing my skills in all of them.
