    [1] Guido van Rossum (Google) is the inventor of Python and has managed
    its growth and development for more than a decade. Guido was
    awarded the Free Software Foundation Award in 2002 and Dr.Dobb's
    1999 Excellence in Programming Award. Guido works at Google and
    spends half of his time on Python.

    [2] Jim Hugunin (Microsoft) is the creator of numerous innovations that
    take Python into new application domains. Jim's most recent project,
    IronPython integrates Python into Microsoft's .NET runtime. Jim's
    previous project, Jython is Python for the Java runtime and was the
    second production-quality implementation of Python. Before that,
    Jim's Numeric Python adapted Python to the needs of number crunching
    applications. Jim works at Microsoft adapting the .NET runtime to
    the needs of dynamic languages like Python.

    [3] Ian Cavén is the primary developer of the Lowry Digital Images
    motion picture restoration system. This Python and Zope-based system
    has been used to restore over 150 motion pictures. Highlights
    include Citizen Kane, Sunset Boulevard and both the Indiana Jones
    and Star Wars trilogies. While Ian was Chief Scientist at Lowry
    Digital, his rack of computers grew from a few Macintoshes on his
    desktop to over six hundred Macintosh and Linux servers - at
    one point earning Lowry the title as the second biggest installation
    of parallel processing Maintoshes in the world. In 2005, Lowry
    Digital Images was acquired by DTS (the famous movie audio company)
    and renamed DTS Digital Images. The motion picture restoration
    system has been discussed in publications as diverse as IEEE
    Spectrum, USA Today, the BBC NEWS, the New York Times and
    Ian has been a Python enthusiast since 1999.
