Well, yes.  That's one of the reasons I like it.

I think both suck :-)

I dunno, this just doesn't seem to work for me as a conference slogan.
Do you expect attending the conference to make you more productive?

       EuroPython 2003
  for the sake of simplicity


       EuroPython 2003
  for the sake of productivity

both read better to me, to the last one is a bit, erm, arrogant, maybe?


  Roll on a game of competetive offence-taking.
