It sounds like the lines between the sage notebook and the ipython 
notebook are blurring.  That's a good thing, I think.  You guys have a 
much more modular, up-to-date design.  And we'd like to expand the sage 
notebook to cover workflows that more closely mimic working at the 
command line.

I won't be at PyCon, but I'm curious if there will be other Sage 
notebook developers there (I'm CCing the Sage notebook mailing list). 
It would be good to collaborate.

Thanks,

Jason
