XKCD Artist Banned From PyCon

Last week, PyCon officials banned Randall Munroe of the webcomic, XKCD from PyCon. This is an odd move after licensing one of his comics for last year’s conference. Of course, if you look at the PyCon mailing list’s archives, you’ll soon realize that this is a publicity stunt and they are instead trying very hard to get him to come. Fun stuff!
