Well, I will volunteer for both planning and presenting (although it 
might be a while before I have a project that i'm willing to subject to 
the scrutiny of the python elite).  I really like these meetings  and 
would hate for those that truely don't own vehicles and can't make it to 
google to miss them (granted I've only been to one and watched another 
on video, I think they are important).

Getting to San Bruno in traffic (coming from the south) is more of an 
issue than the fact that its 20 miles away. That's the reason I'd like 
to see more google meetings
