This podcast is an interview and wide-ranging discussion with John Graves about his Open Allure open source project, a web based educational tool written in Python with a fascinating user interface utilizing gestures, voice recognition, and text to speech. Open Allure is his PhD project in New Zealand and John is heading to silicon valley this summer as an intern at Ray Kurzweil's Singularity University. He is a man of many interests and the wide ranging discussion hits on many Pythonic topics, the philosophy of open source, key technological tipping points, and much more. I have been delinquent in producing podcasts lately but this is a good one. John has a lot to say on many topics covered in previous Python411 podcasts.
