Hi all<div><br></div><div>I just received this email from Jackson at Python Central, who I do a bit of blogging for. It&#39;s a mail he forwarded to the Python Central authors, apparently from a publishing company. I just thought I&#39;d pass it on here in case anyone was interested in what they&#39;re doing.</div>
<div><br></div><div>The email seems genuine, in that the domain is registered to Packt Publishing, and they seem to have works on Safari Books.</div><div><br></div><div>Maybe a letter from Fernando could convince them to base their <em style="font-family:Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;font-size:14px;line-height:18px">Python Data Visualization Cookbook</em> on IPython Notebook.</div>
<div><br></div><div>I dunno, it&#39;s early here ~ I need another cup of tea before I start thinking about anything ~ just a heads-up really.</div><div><br></div><div>Cheers</div><div><br></div><div>Carl<br><br><br><div class="gmail_quote">
