I like that idea. My laptop isn't actually what I use as my regular
development platform, but I might be able to set it up.

Hmm. I do use ipython, but 95% of the reason I do is only that I never
remember the magic you need to do to turn on tab completion in python's
interactive mode. I think my ipython talk would be limited to "aptitude
install ipython", "ipython", "See? Pretty colors." which is pretty
short, even for a lightning talk. :)

That'd be good. I might be able to do a quick pdb thing. Also good to
see would be winpdb.
Other things that I might be able to talk about include:
- OpenID for Twisted, a current pet project of mine.
- (or OpenID for anything else, which is my day job.)
- ZenOSS. I haven't actually touched the Python in that at all, but I
played with the app recently. Don't think I want to try to get it
running on my laptop though. :-/
- buildbot, I guess.
If I did a little more research first, I could talk about
- AMP, the Asynchronous Messaging Protocol.
- Foolscap, a sequel to my Perspective Broker presentation four years
- Q2Q / Vertex / Juice. Honestly, I have no clue, but presenting on it
would force me to figure it out. ;)
Some other things I'd like to hear about are
- pypy and/or rpython
- testing, especially testing web applications

There's the Acme on 8th. I guess there's a rumor that it's just changed
hands, but as long as it's still open it's an option.
Other note: It is forecast to be 100 Fahrenheit at 6 PM on Tuesday. I
may die in the attempt to get from my air-conditioned office to
CubeSpace by 7 pm.
