I like the kudos, thanks!, but I'm not quite sure what you're saying
about my travel plans... just to clarify, once again I'll have to miss
EuroPython _and_ PythonUK, two events I attended most assiduously when I
was living in Europe (but then, for two years running I've also missed
PyCon, _despite_ living in the US, sigh).

Besides Pycon Uno, in my short trip in early June, I hope to also visit
Cracow, and perhaps give a Python talk at the University there if my
Polish colleagues can arrange things, but that will be it.

It's not so much about working for Google, which isn't stopping e.g.
Guido from attending conferences of his choice -- it's more about my
also having accepted managerial responsibilities there, which means I
can't really do my "primary" job all that well by logging in remotely
from my laptop:-).
