Keynote by Hadar Pedhazur.
Open Source and Venture Capital have found each other. Witness the detailed article in the January 2000 issue of Linux Magazine. However, in this case, not only has Venture Capital found a Python company, but to a large degree, Python created a Venture Capitalist!
This talk begins with the history of Hadar Pedhazur's discovery and use of Python at the Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), which led to his discovery of Digital Creations. From that, the leap to Venture Capitalist was natural and obvious :-).
