In the past, at-meeting recruiting has been done personally by people who
are happy working at a company and want to encourage other people in the
community to join them.  As long as that continues, I wish to put as few
barriers in the way of at-meeting recruiting as possible.  BayPIGgies is
about the local human face of Python.

I do think the recent suggestion of putting announcements at the end of
the meeting is good: it gets the meeting going quickly; people who aren't
interested in announcements can leave; and people who are interested can
find the annnouncer immediately after the announcement.
