Slashdot: Python + Ruby
To celebrate the release of Python 2.1 (nested scopes! hurrah!) they're collecting questions for Guido (van Rossum - the Python head honcho).

Also, on the same site, a review of Programming Ruby.

Apologies if you've already seen these, but maybe not everyone reads /.

Yep. I for one prefer to use site like LtU as a filter.

Seems to be a language fest across there at the moment - now there's an article on a Smalltalk conference.

The Smalltalk trip report linked from the /. article is makes for pretty interesting reading. Consider this quote (which also appears on the Python Daily-URL

We had the Python guy come talk at a conference and he gave us the same talk that Adele Goldberg gave years ago as something new. We were saddened. But what we have done is created a Smalltalk black hole were no ideas or light gets out. The Python guys rediscover our work and they become front page news.
