Hey all,

Thanks for the post Ian! By way of background, my name is Chad Whitacre, 
I'm from Pittsburgh, and I'll be in Chicago during the next ChiPy 
meeting (April 13). I plan on attending one way or another, but I 
offered to Ian to give a presentation on either or both of a couple 
projects I've got going (I brought these to PyCon too):

   httpy -- a sane and robust HTTP library

   testosterone -- a curses-based testing interface

So if you guys are up for it, then let me know how long I should plan 
for, and whether you have any preference between testing and web 

Thanks! Looking forward to it!
