In Chicago

All checked in at the Crown Plaza (where most of the core devs seem to be staying). Took the hotel shuttle over with Glyph and Brian Dorsey. Glyph and I had different flights from BOS to ORD but arrived at the same time. Go figure.

The talk of the town so far is Unladen Swallow - a google effort to replace the CPython byte code machine with LLVM. Goal #1 "Produce a version of Python at least 5x faster than CPython." Holy S**t.
