I agree with the comments about Python. But if you're interested in
programming for the web, ie, a database-driven web application, then I
would recommend Ruby on Rails. Ruby is a scripting programming
language similar to Python in some ways, and Rails is a framework that
makes it very easy to set up web applications without much code.
Clean, elegant.

Rails is at: www.rubyonrails.com. You can start with Rails without
necessarily knowing Ruby first.
A nice place to start on Ruby is: http://poignantguide.net/ruby/index.html.
