Hey everyone.

Yesterday Matt George put this up:
  http://pynash.org/

I wanna put a group blog on that page. Here's the idea.
  - 5 of us sign up as writers
  - each writer gets a day of the week
  - so once a week, each writer puts up a post
    The rules are, the post has to be at least 100 words*
    and 4 lines of code
  - The first writer to miss a day buys lunch for the others
    at the next PyNash lunch

Wouldn't it be cool? Even if it doesn't go on forever, it'd just be so much fun to have a snippet of Python code to look forward to every morning. :)

TL;DR: sign here for a FREE LUNCH

Who's with me?

I'd love to do this, but at a biweekly level :)

whattya say we set up a pelican static blog there?  I've done a couple of these and would be happy to set it up.  Then we can use github to manage the blogging auth via github.

Given that the site is hosted on github pages, i went ahead and created a jekyll version of the site. If you want to take a look at it, it's in the jekyll branch on the github repo. Github already runs all the content in a pages repo through a jekyll filter, so it made since to do so. I plan on merging this in sometime tonight. Let me know if you have any questions.

Well, what do you think, should we all participate at a biweekly level? Or should Jason and Whit be a team? Or what?

- whitmo/jasonamyers
- tsclausing
- r_macy
- jorendorff

That looks pretty cool to me.

Hey All,
I've converted the site to a jykell powered site. What this means is that when you want to add a post, you add a markdown file in the _posts directory. You can see an example by looking at the Coming-Soon page. Another good resource is here: http://jekyllbootstrap.com/lessons/jekyll-introduction.html#content_in_jekyll. When you want to make a post, create a fork, make a pull request and I will merge it. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Also, I will throw my name into the hat to produce some posts.

thanks,
Matt

Absolutely - And I'll take Wednesday if it's available!

Are we sticking to the standard library, or is anything interesting fair game for a post?

Anything interesting. The only rules are, 100+ words, 4+ lines of Python code.

(I think mine might end up being kind of long, because it's a *lot* less time-consuming to write whatever comes into my head, whatever length that happens to be, than to hit a target.)
