Incidentally, some people have been asking, "Wait a minute - PyCon-US in Canada? How does that work? Wouldn't it be more correct to call it PyCon-NA for North America?"
It might, if this were a case of nations cooperating to share PyCon. However, that is not the case. You will notice that the Canadians haven't cancelled their own PyCon. Rather, they have seized PyCon-US by ruthless volunteerism and are even now dragging it off to their stronghold on the St. Lawrence, to hoard it along with the PyCon they already have. That's right, they want ALL THE PYCONS.
Pythonistas of the world, be warned! When friendly faces from the North arrive to lend a hand, watch them carefully! Or you'll soon be flying to Vancouver for PyAr and Winnipeg for EuroPython.
