Yeah, unfortunately, the following isn't working for me as of late:
from __future__ import teleporter

In all seriousness though, there are some interesting things in the  
notes there like gitjour, which I'll have to check out.  Also GitHub  
is quite nice, especially being free for open source projects.  Are  
they doing video postings of these talks?

Speaking of social/collaboration aspects to DVCS use, bzr does have a  
major thing going for it for open source projects in launchpad.net.   
That's especially the case if you're interested in using it to work on  
things that you'll end up rolling up as debian/ubuntu packages, but  
there are some multiplatform projects there as well.  I suppose the  
bug tracking and planning features work well there too, since  
Canonical is using them to manage bugs for Ubuntu.

The one thing that has seriously irritated me about bzr with svn is  
that it's a huge pain to compile bzr-svn on OS X (yes, I know there  
are packages, but they're built for Apple's python, and my default  
interpreter is an additional install of python.). Building the  
dependencies and installing them from scratch never seems to work for
