I just saw that the Python folks now have a Frank Willison Award for Contributions to the Python Community. I think Frank would have found that both touching and a bit a humorous. That a technical award would be named after such a talented wordsmith wouldn’t have been the way Frank pictured his legacy. Still, it’s a good gig if you can get it and Frank was someone who was both very rare and much beloved.
