"Guido van Rossum, the proclaimed Python Benevolent Dictator For Life,
has left Google to work for Dropbox. In their announcement, Dropbox
says they relied heavily on Python from the beginning, citing a mix of
simplicity, flexibility, and elegance, and are excited to have GvR on
the team. While this is, without a doubt, good news for Dropbox, the
big question is what this will mean for Python (and for Google)."
