Yes we do, if we can find Google volunteers in each location -- not
sure about the situation at YouTube, but down here in MTV
videoconferencing is enabled in each of the rooms Baypiggies has met
over the years (Seville, Tunis, Paramaribo, &c). I suspect the San
Francisco Google office is similarly well placed in this respect --
if, again, we can find a SF googlers to volunteer for hosting that
site's meeting.

Sure -- hey, once Guido and I spoke with a Python user group meeting
in Belo Horizonte, Brazil -- at the Google office there, of course,
and we were videoconferencing in from Mountain View.

With or w/o VC, I think it would be great for Baypiggies to meet
farther North (and even East maybe) at least once in a while;
selfishly speaking, I do of course appreciate the convenience of
having the meetings here, but it does seem quite unfair to Pythonistas
living much farther North or East -- under the assumption that some
such Pythonistas WILL volunteer to host the meeting of course (be it
at some Google office[s] or elsewhere)... if there are no such
volunteers then at least I won't feel unfair or selfish for the MTV
meetings any more;-).
