Thank you Phillip Eby for giving credit where's credit's due in your comment on this article.
Zope's ancestor Bobo could do something almost a decade ago that's getting popular now: object publishing. Jim Fulton deserves a lot of credit for that. This also makes me wonder whether there are things in Zope 3 that will become popular about a decade from now... Perhaps some people would like to join us to help find out?
I also think Jim and Paul deserve credit for helping to turn Phillip Eby into a python programmer.
