Aside from its use at PyCon, would you consider making your slides available

I've often thought that the Python community could use a ready-to-go slide
deck for a basic introduction. I've considered giving a local "intro to
Python" presentation - heck, the local Perl Mongers group has been *nagging
me to* - but I haven't had time to put together a good slide deck. If I
could just grab an existing introductory talk, practice it, and go - I could
start presenting right away. I'll bet we could find people in many cities
who could do the same thing.
Is there a "standard" Intro to Python slide deck out there already that I'm
simply unaware of?
