Since 2007 I have begun to give frequent presentations at FLOSS/programming conferences
I write two columns for IBM developerWorks. One on (mostly introductory) Python topics, called Charming Python. The other is called XML Matter, and is on matters XML (generally at a somewhat more advanced level). The installments have grown sufficiently numerous to warrant new branches.
