OSCON 2007 in Portland, Oregon from July 23-27 is fast approaching.  This is a 
professional conference that can give Python a lot of visibility in the IT 
world and draws a different crowd from our community-run conferences like  PyCon.

There looks to be a good set of talks on the Python track, with several 
positioned to promote the use of Python by telling its story:

   - Code Like a Pythonista: Idiomatic Python
   - SQLAlchemy: Taming ORM with Python
   - Super-sizing YouTube
   - How to Write a Killer Sugar Activity
   - Exploiting Multicore Capabilities from Python
   - Python 3000
   - Programming for Everybody: CP4E
   - Coding with Dynamic Confidence

There also is the opportunity to reach out by holding Python 
birds-of-a-feather gatherings.  The Python community is a friendly group and 
face-to-face contact is important to convey the human aspect of Python.  BoFs 
can be scheduled by visiting the OSCON page:


I will not be attending this year, so we need one or more who are willing to 
step forward and loosely organize a bit.  Let's discuss this on the Python 
advocacy mailing list and make it happen this year.
