Not sure how many of you subscribe to the oreilly newsletters, but just recieved one with a link to <a href="http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/python/2004/01/15/twisted_intro.html">an introduction to Twisted</a>.
I've only recently begun looking at it myself, and only briefly at that, but it seems to be pretty impressive. Of course, it is written in/for python, so that should go without saying ;-)

Twisted is a pretty good idea, and the coders who wrote it are generally pretty smart. They kind of tend to reinvent things unnecessarily, though. Sometimes it seems that they think that anything that they didn't write isn't any good, so they just rewrite it instead of helping improve the existing stuff. It's been a while since I messed with it, so I can't think of any specific examples.
The python IRC bot in my sig can function with twisted IRC drivers But I didn't write those.
