This is a little set of pages containing information on using python for computation and computer vision
I am also working on a blog that I am starting off with a set of posts on how to get a working setup including easy_install. These instructions will work on a cvssp managed machine, so you might want to check them out.
If you want to add to this wiki, just mail me to let me know and I'll send you the password. You can then edit the pages.
