I made a case for Python being the language of choice for teaching undergrads in the new Informatics major. Maybe I can get folks in the department to read this essay on Python in bioinformatics. Along with a project to extend the use of Python in bioinformatics, maybe the language will make the same kinds of inroads it has made in physics and elsewhere. It would be nice to use this as a model for social informatics: but there is nothing similar in terms of an agenda in our field (if it is, indeed, a field).
