Just a note to say that I think this is a fantastic logo, and can, in my 
opinion, be (marginally) improved. The best logos have little or no text in 
them (or text that can be removed) and a very simple striking design.
(Think of logos that haven't changed in (say) decades rather than
something new)

If you lose the text (ie "uro" & "ython") as well as EU stars around the logo 
above, you're left with something very striking & very simple, and IMO 
potentially very stylish :-)

It's also got potential for bio-informatics people who work with python by 
mirroring horizontally and aping the traditional "medical" logo of entwined 
snakes. (You could even have that as a play on ideas - you do that and say 
something like "Go to Europython - Because it's good for you" :-)
