Going to PyCon 2006

Found out this week that I get to attend PyCon 2006 on my employer's dime. Never been to anything like this before, so it should be interesting. Probably will attend the more web-related presentations.

Trying PyBlosxom

Going to give PyBlosxom a try, seems like a pretty simple system for throwing together a simple blog. Right now simple sounds pretty good. A lot of the Python-related blogs I normally end up seeing seem to use this software, so I figure it can't be too bad. Things like Zope/Plone/Turbogears seem like way overkill for just a simple one-person setup.

I'm kind of interested in the idea of a blog as a resume, so I'll try to write down some of the things I've worked on or figured out.

Previously, I've put some things on Advogato, however I always felt a bit guilty entering items that were too lengthy or not interesting enough for other readers. I guess that doesn't stop most bloggers, but at least on my own server I feel I can abuse it as much as I want.
