This month we have a talk by Anthony Baxter on Python 3000.

Anthony Baxter
Google/Python Software Foundation

Anthony has been involved in the open-source community for more than a
decade, largely working in Python and, in the last few years, on
Python. He's worked in the Internet area and in the telco space, where
he gets to exercise his incredibly short attention span by working on
far far too many things at once. He's written or contributed to more
open source projects than he can remember – mostly related to
networking and protocol implementations.

He's currently the release manager for Python. This is much less
glamorous than you might think. After a number of years working for a
travel-based telephone company, he's recently started working for
Google Australia.

Anthony's spoken at a number of conferences, including a keynote at
linux.conf.au 2008, at each of the 4 OSDC conferences held so far, and
presented Effective Python Programming at OSCON 2005.
