Just wanted to introduce myself - I'm a Python programmer normally
from Chicago, whose g/f is spending a quarter at Stanford. For work,
I'm the Chief Technical Dude for juju.com, a job search engine. Also,
I ride bikes and play Ultimate. Yeah!
Anyway, I'm hoping to make the meeting tomorrow. How long do they
usually run? Just want to make sure I can get home on Caltrain.
My company is looking to hire another developer. I've attached a job

interested (or email me off-list).
Looking forward to meeting y'all.
