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  
description - please feel free to talk to me tomorrow if you  
interested (or email me off-list).

Looking forward to meeting y'all.
