Hi Piggies

I'm new to the group as I'm learning Python (thanks for all the recent  
recommendations for beginners) to start programming on boxee, a  
company I do some work for.  if you're not familiar with boxee, it's  
an open source media center project that aims to bring all your media  
into one place - whether from a HDD, LAN, or on the Net (including  
Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Flickr).  You can find out more at http://boxee.tv 
  and if you're on Windows let me know and I'll send you over a  
Windows copy of the application.

I wanted to let all of you know that if you feel like putting your  
Python skills to use, boxee is hosting an Application Development  
Challenge with the opportunity to win a fully stocked 4TB drobo, a 46"  
TV, and/or Pogoplugs for the top apps built in XML/Python.   You can  
find all the details on the boxee website, but they're accepting  
entries in video, music, and photo categories for any content source  
you think would be cool to add - recent additions have been apps for  
drop.io, nextNewNetworks, Kutiman, and Current.TV.

The deadline is June 14th to get apps in, and there will be a boxee  
event on the 23rd in SF to announce the winners.

Hope you guys can take part, and I'm looking forward to meeting you at  
the next piggies event!
