Publicity is what some other groups do at our meetings ;-)

Stating a non-goal is not useful when the goals themselves are not 
articulated.  So ....

1) Serve as a learning and information exchange forum
2) Promote the local (an global) Python economy

Publicity promotes goal 1 by getting our existence better known.  Publicity 
serves goal 2 by perhaps reaching synergistic constituencies (hiring 
managers, company technical leads, startup infrastructure, ...)

Well, it is a start

Publicity is a means to achieving certain goals.  We need to come to some 
understanding of goals.  I can state my goals (see above) and publicity 
fits into them.

Fair enough.  "Detrimental to BayPIGgies" is clearly NOT a goal.
