[1] Guido van Rossum (Google) is the inventor of Python and has managed
     its growth and development for more than a decade. Guido was awarded
     the Free Software Foundation Award in 2002 and Dr.Dobb's 1999
     Excellence in Programming Award. Guido works at Google and spends
     half of his time on Python.

[2] Jim Hugunin (Microsoft) is the creator of numerous innovations that
     take Python into new application domains. Jim's most recent project,
     IronPython integrates Python into Microsoft's .NET runtime. Jim's
     previous project, Jython is Python for the Java runtime and was the
     second production-quality implementation of Python. Before that,
     Jim's Numeric Python adapted Python to the needs of number crunching
     applications. Jim works at Microsoft adapting the .NET runtime to
     the needs of dynamic languages like Python.
