Python: Concurrency

I'm giving a talk on Python Concurrency tomorrow at Py Web SF. I gave the same talk at BayPiggies two years ago, and I wrote an article on it for Dr. Dobb's Journal. However, I've updated the talk to cover new topics such as Tornado Web, gevent, and nginx.

Hey JJ,

Last night I managed to accomplish what I set out to do: I strapped gevent onto the side of my tornado project and replaced the underlying db drivers with pg8000 (which is 100% python code) and upgraded sqlalchemy to the latest version to support it. I now have a fully feature web stack on top of gevent :) It ran some unit tests and it seems to be solid, but I still need to confirm that I'm getting the speed/concurrency from gevent and there aren't any blocking calls.
