Agreed. I'm still open to 2009 somewhere else, if someone wants to
push for it, but happy to stay in Chicago. We should decide on 2009 in
the next 6 months, and I want to nail down 2010 around this time next
year (perhaps at PyCon). I don't relish having to go through this
process 3 times in 12 months. I have a real job too ;-)

We can always come back to Chicago, or Dallas (but in a bigger venue),
or DC (ditto), in future years, once the locals have had time to
