I attended the first meeting of the new NH Python SIG (PySIG) in Manchester last night. About 13 folks interested in programming in python.
My two pet projects that I'd like to write in python are "pull info from a spreadsheet and set title, description, tags, etc on specific photos already hosted on Flickr.com" (to support this genealogy project) and "pull info from a Zoph (nice, but defunct) web/MySQL-based photo organizer and dump it into the next great photo organizer (F-Stop? something else?) without loosing too much data"
