Pippy. And Winnie-the-Pooh.
cananian

In October, SJ and I travelled to Peru for OLPC. (Ob. Plug: buy a G1G1 machine this holiday season! It helps get laptops to needy kids and helps fund us to develop more and better software for those kids.)

Anyway, my favorite story from our time in Peru was when SJ stood up in front of a classroom of university kids and announced, in Spanish, "Now we are going to make drawings with pee-pee." He actually was talking about Pippy, the python-programming-for-kids activity written by Chris Ball (with patches from yours truely and others) -- but there's a reason why Pippy is translated "Peppy" in Spanish =).

But I've found another contender for that crown: a cookbook. Best book title ever. (David Friedman not only found that book, he made it an "employee pick" when working at a "large chain bookstore".)

So. Pippy and Winnie-the-Pooh. Closing a scatological circle.

(While I'm in the neighborhood, I have to plug David Friedman's Murder in the Hundred Acre Wood as well. And 10 Lessons from the Movies. Ok, go resume your productive lives now.)
