Everything Python-related you want is probably one or two clicks away in
these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia
Notice especially the master FAQ

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
marvelous daily python url
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
sure to scan this newly-revitalized newsgroup at least weekly.

Brett Cannon continues the marvelous tradition established by
Andrew Kuchling and Michael Hudson of intelligently summarizing
action on the python-dev mailing list once every other week.

The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
to all sorts of Python resources.

Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
mailing lists

The Python Business Forum "further[s] the interests of companies
that base their business on ... Python."

The Python Software Foundation has replaced the Python Consortium
as an independent nexus of activity

Cetus does much of the same

While I've read noPeter's original comment, reading it here
made me laugh *again* :-) I don't know, I find this very
funny indeed... Is that a good or a bad sign?

btw: Thanks Emile for the Python-URL.
