I'm replicating / forwarding something I sent to
Maria Drujkova's Math Future Google group,
a resource in itself, lots of overlap with Python.
Since it mentions Chicago so much, and I know
from many visits that Chicago is big into education,
which I somewhat touch on.

To: mathfuture at googlegroups.com
I gave a 3.5 hour workshop in Chicago again this year,
somewhat overlapping in content with my workshop of
2009, co-presented with Steve Holden, then chairman
of the Python Software Foundation. 51 minutes of the
2009 talk survive on BlipTV.
At DjangoCon, workshops were not taped (the shorter
talks were) so what survives is this 3.5 minute
"director's comments" special feature on Youtube:
You'll find allusions to my Tractor Math talk at the
eduSummit at Pycon 2013 , where I met some of you
in person e.g. Michel Paul. David Chandler was also
there and has since moved to Portland.
I suppose you could say it's a commercial for
O'Reilly School and/or Wolfram but neither was
paying me to script it that way. I just wanted to
highlight their small town proximity and yes,
there's a deeper relationship behind the scenes,
as one might expect given both are math-oriented
and scanning the horizon for emerging possibilities.
