Dear all,

It is a pleasure to report that the abstract for the SciPy conference
was accepted.

As you probably know both Joao and me will be presenting Biopython (Joao
on BOSC and me on SciPy). The scope of the presentation will be
slightly different: I think Joao will concentrate on updates, whereas
my presentation will be more general.

I would like to spend some time on putting forward a snappy
presentation that could be re-used (even if only partially) by others in
the future.

I am trying to think on what technology to use. I want to avoid
powerpoint, beamer and friends. Also most web presentation frameworks
are actually quite powerpoint-like.

I am trying to find something that is free-software, can easily use
animations and insightful presenting features. Should work on the web
and on live-presentations. I am ignoring dead-tree printing.

I am considering quite some wacky things like blender or animation
packages. Trying to be a bit out-of-the-box in terms of form...

If someone has any ideas...
