+Alex Gaynor will be giving a talk entitled _Why is Python slow and how

+Maciej will also be giving the talk _Running ultra large telescopes

+partially about his experiences using PyPy in the  Square Kilometer Array
+project in South Africa.  There will be a PyPy Sprint March 14-17.  
+All are welcome.
