While I am on the subject of conference organization, I don't believe I have recorded what a terrific job Andrew Kuchling has done in putting PyCon 2006 together. I know from personal experience that the organization of this conference places huge stresses on the chairman, but Andrew has performed magnificently.
This PyCon has been better in so many respects than the three that preceded it. I also know from the chatter I've seen in the background during the preceding year that things are becoming rather better codified to assist future organizers. PyCon will continue to improve.
Well done, Andrew!
