The 5th of July is a Thursday for those of us calendar-challenged.

I'd like to hear / give talks on:

 - python + web services; Django interests me but the whole WSGI thing too

 - mod_python; comparisons to fastcgi + wsgi, plus / minuses

 - python + databases; compared to Perl (DBI) Python seems weak, why so?

 - python as glue; I still tend to reach for (in order) shell / sed / 
awk / perl / python -- common idioms in the other languages expessed in 
python would be handy

 - "There's a snake in your enterprise"; Python + LDAP / Active Directory

 - "Python 3001: A Snake's Odyssey"; what's next for Python

 - "Slithering past the enemy"; Python on a .Net / Java VM (IronPython)
