   - BangPypers should have a twitter handle + facebook page. I can
   volunteer to maintain it.
   - Post all the up coming meetings as a blog post, so that people can
   subscribe for RSS feed or posts as email.
   - Apparently there are lot of people who don't follow bangpypers mailing
   list + meetup, so it easy if we can have twitter handle + facebook page +
   RSS feed which makes promotion easier.
   - Currently we have agenda where someone needs to prepare a talk and
   present. This can be tedious if I have tiring week, so if we post our
   meetup as a blog post and enable comments, people who will be attending can
   leave comment about their area of exposure in python. As a result people
   can come to meetup and after talk they can have general discussion. Today
   myself and Baiju were discussing about PyPy progress and how much PyPy is
   used in production. This can enable good discussion between beginners and
   experienced users.

Talk started at 3:30 and ended at 4:30, then half an hour snacks
> + discussion.

   - It would be great if there can be a time keeper for sessions and
   facilitate in an informal way.

> Please feel free to add your views.
