Along similar lines, I was at an all-Oregon computer conference
yesterday and although I didn't make any formal presentation, it was a
small gathering and I got to be an effective diplomat for Python.

Plus there was obvious interest in the language independently of me
(although of those present, to my knowledge only Gary Frankenberry, a
past president of this group, currently uses it with his high
schoolers, as a prelude to doing some Java -- in addition to myself
that is).

More details are posted in my blog, for any curious:
