Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Comment

I, in fact, as a programmer, find it a lot easier to think of Python in terms of hashtables and namespaces rather than objects. That's perhaps because of how it's implemented. I came to Python from a OO mindset and found it difficult to learn in the beginning, but from the point I realised it's name-value pairs all the way, it started feeling like a toy.
