You didn't miss much context, just a couple emails between John, David, 
Adrian, and myself.  I don't know what exactly the format would be for 
this, but probably not like a typical ChiPy meeting (which is just a 
bunch of us hanging out, with a relatively informal presentation on 

We *could* all just hang out, and that would be cool; I guess we have to 
decide, and advertise it accordingly.

Well, we've been getting around 15 (?) people at meetings recently.  The 
Ruby meetup I was at had maybe 15 people, and I think they might have 
placed a limit on it.  So I dunno what to expect... 40 people?  Is there 
a space available for that many?

That would be great; Chicago was part of a 3-way tie for first place for 
preferred PyCon locations, so if we have the space I think we can get 
the conference (in 2007).

October 13 and November 10 are the next (regular) meetings.  I don't 
think this event will really replace the meeting (unless we decide we're 
feeling too lazy to organize both).  But that discussion can go in a 
different thread.
