As I'm re-reading through some sqlalchemy documentation today, I'm
thinking, "Would be nice lighting talk if someone more authoritative
than myself would give a talk about sqlalchemy". And that thought
reminded me of this email and now I'd like to suggest that we build a
calender of events feature to the site with a social aspect to it.
Something that allows me to hit the page and post a comment, "Hey, any
sqlalchemy gurus want to give a lighting talk next meeting?".
