Python is a very good language to start with. It teaches good programming style and general programming very well. You should learn basic input/output, socket/http web request programming, and system programming, like file input/output, and anything else that comes to mind. As you should always do, start simple and if you can find an incremental tutorial to start teaching you the basics, then that would be the best.

Good sites if I remember correctly, its been awhile ;)

Another good thing to use to get the over concepts down if you are having trouble is a program called AgentSheets. It is extremely basic but does a good job showing how the basic flow of things work.
