[Baypiggies] Brainstorming: PyCon through the year

The list of videos from PyCon (on the link sent by Shailen (http://pycon.blip.tv/posts?view=archive&nsfw=dc) 
) are 12 dozen + 2 = 146.

If we met once per week, in a setting with a large projector or TV,  
and watched two or three of these videos, we wouldn't finish for an  
entire year.

How many of us would actually sit down and watch the videos we wanted  
to see from PyCon? Or, is it something we want to do but just never  
get around to it?

If we watched them as a group -- a few every Saturday for example, and  
then had a discussion around the topic, we would learn so much more  
--- especially if the videos we chose for the day were themed on a  
particular subject and more knowledgeable people from that subject  
also showed up to discuss the topics with us.

This is just a brainstorming idea. I don't want to take away from the  
summary talks that Jim is arranging for our next meet. Plus, I'm not  
committed to organizing this because I have too much on my plate and  
things are falling off.

But, if you like this idea, I throw it out to the community. I  
wouldn't say no to helping people if they needed help to organize the  
first meeting.
