I regularly attend the South Bay NetBSD monthly meetings.  There is _never_ an agenda!  That would be far too organized for us.  We have pizza and chat about some aspect of NetBSD that is relevant to each of us, as we wish.  It's pure "random access".  Since several NetBSD developers show up, it's a great place to have questions answered, or to have other smart folks critique an idea or to have them suggest some ways of solving a problem.

As I see it, the meeting topics are a "draw" - they give people a reason to attend.  But once a bunch of pythonistas gather, it's gonna be interesting, program or not.
