There's a huge difference between the SF Python Meetup and BayPiggies.
 At BayPiggies, everyone tends to be older, the crowd is smaller, and
more people are looking for work.  At the SF Python Meetup, everyone
tends to be fairly young, the crowd is often fairly large, and lots of
startups are hiring.  A few months ago, there was a bidding war to see
who would come up with the best referral bonuses.

The SF Python Web meetup and the SF Python Game meetups have a bunch
of the same people, and they're usually only about 10 people.
(Although, it's 10 very nice people.)

Despite the small turnout at BayPiggies, it's still my favorite users
group among any that I attend (in Ruby, Scala, etc.).
