It looks like I can.  Also, I am something of a Python fan myself.

I would be willing to share a hotel room with someone I know.  I would
need some setup time and accommodation in advance of the conference.
When will you have access to the venue?

I'm based in Cambridge, UK.  Return flights from London to Chicago for
that week are currently priced at about £320 so reckon on about £400 for
my door-to-door transport costs.  I wouldn't expect to earn money from
this; only to have my expenses paid.

As I think I said before, Holger and I were at the 25C3 and we were
impressed with the video coverage.  We were intending to get in contact
with the video team for that (FeM Streaming team
<http://streaming.fem.tu-ilmenau.de/>) in the hope of future
collaboration or at least knowledge-sharing.  You may also be able to
recruit from them; I expect that many of them will have good English.
