Here is a cool video interview with Jim Hugunin, creator of IronPyton. (Interview is available in .wmv and .mp4 formats.)

Jim Hugunin is a Pytho guru, so lay to rest any notion that he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Interestingly, IronPython started as a project intended to demonstrate that .NET sucked at supporting dynamic languages, but wound up demonstrating the opposite.
