Guido van Rossum - creator of Python (Netherlands, 1990)
Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language (with modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high level dynamic data types, and classes). 
  - very clear syntax
  - has interfaces to many system calls and libraries, to various window systems
  - extensible in C or C++
  - portable (Unix, Windows, Mac, OS/2).
  - has a version (jython) written in java - you can import it into your java code!!
  - Open Source

- 2000 - Guido and the Python core development team moved to Zope Corporation (www.zope.com). 
- 2001 - Python Software Foundation (PSF - www.python.org/psf/) was formed, a non-profit organization created specifically to own Python-related Intellectual Property. Digital Creations is a sponsoring member of the PSF.
