"El Segundo, CA 2002 March 04 Py, an independent technical zine for Python software developers, announced today the launch of its first issue.
I dont have a lot to say as Im still exhausted from the last-minute, whirlwind editing session and now only have the tedious task of shipping ahead of me. The shakes from the caffeine are making it a bit difficult to focus right now, but Im very happy with how the first issue turned out, said Bryan Richard, Editor and Publisher.
Preorders for the first issue, which started 2002 February 01, topped out at just over 300 copies.
The cover price for this landmark publication is $3.00 US and $5.00 Foreign and can be ordered at the website www.PyZine.com.
About Py (the zine)
Its a zine. About Python. Its not nearly as ambivalent as this release probably makes it sound.
About Py (the publishing empire)
Py is largely the work of its contributors and Bryan Richard -- who is utterly disenchanted with the whole press release process and its oft-repeated verbiage. Bryan is just some guy from Southern California that wants to spread the good word about Python, drinks way too much coffee, and listens to a lot of indie rock when he isnt listening to a lot of jazz. With the launch of Py he is one step closer to owning Hearst Castle. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org"
