Good tip. I really like bustaname.com Their second tab is like wordoid, but they have other tools too.

Do you have reverse dns records set up?

Zed, are you going to be writing any other books for Python, like Python 3 or more advanced topics? Maybe "Advanced Python the Hard Way?"

-----


Nope, I'm not writing any more Python books, instead I'm writing a book on C.

-----


If you're open to suggestions, I and I'm sure lots of others would love to see one for objective C.

-----


Cool...when's that coming out?

LPTHW starts to get more complicated around exercise 30.

The course is on sale at AppSumo: http://www.appsumo.com/learn-python-promo/?act=dealtwt (referral code comes from the original source -- does not belong to me)

The course includes video lectures and a Q&A feature. I have not taken the course, but I really liked the first edition book.

I can't tell either. You can review the new edition in HTML for free here: http://learnpythonthehardway.org/book/

It's a pretty interesting idea, I haven't seen this before.

Adgrok, monthly subscription, and they've been great (my only affiliation is as a customer).

-----


I'm sure they've realized the real benefit here is that people will search Google, rather than typing in a domain, which leads to incremental traffic/searches/ad impressions.

Not a lot of copy here to comment on. Feels like you're phishing for users...

-----


No, not at all, I'm just trying to get the copy right. I actually cut the copy in half on the advice that too much copy on a pre-launch page can be counter-productive. Perhaps I should add more back to it.

-----


Well, I signed up for an invite. I like your "referral for reward" marketing strategy. Maybe include a "more" link to give info to people who want to find out what you're doing?

-----


That's a really good idea. I'm going to talk to my team about whether they're comfortable revealing details at this stage.. Thanks for the thoughts.

-----


I took your advice and we added a link for more details which leads to an about us page. Thanks again for the input.
