More lightning

After yesterday's great lightning talks, I was looking forward to today's talks as well. They didn't disappoint.
  • Ka-Ping talked about creating antigravity in his dorm room. Awesome.
  • Some really cool Python and hardware hacks from Peter Kropf as he went on a two-month motorcycle road trip across North America.
  • Wai Yip Tung's MindRetrieve does cool personal web history search using PyLucene. Looked kind of like Google Desktop's search of your web history, except that it's cross-platform and focuses just on web history search.
  • Someone whose name I didn't catch (sorry!) showed us the Canary Database, which does neat work for libraries and also uses PyLucene. Made me pretty sorry that I missed the PyLucene talk earlier today.
  • And plenty more...
