Fresh Expressions / Changing Church?

Oh good Pam has saved me writing a blog entry about Wednesday evening PamBG’s Blog: Fresh Expressions / Changing Church?.

It was a good evening, the DVD is being ordered and I will be pushing for more action in this area. The stats are scary. 60% of the population can’t connect with traditional ways of being church, that means all the variety of worship styles that cause so much tension still only widen the spectrum to 40% of the population.

Action, this day: well not today, it’s my day off ;-)

WSGI is making a real difference

This Ingredients to the Pylons Python Web Framework demonstrates nicely why all python web frameworks should be based on WSGI now (not nice to have in the future but needed now). RhubarbTart is another good example of the advantages of building on WSGI (and specifically both these use PythonPaste).

An alternative example is httpy — a sane and robust HTTP library for Python which does indeed look sane and have some neat features, but surely now is the wrong time to launch something that aims to compete with WSGI. In fact I suspect that httpy would fit easily under wsgi, in the process allowing some code to be dropped. Essentially all httpy needs is a wsgi coupler (in its own terminology).
