Yes, we do use it at work but when I say "we" I mostly mean "me". This would be easier if there were more developers here using Python. So I've got to come up with some persuasive arguments for doing it, while also acknowledging that we don't really have a lot of Python developers. It's kind of this chicken and egg problem I have here.  Maybe it really comes down to convincing the business types that Python is something we're going to be using a lot of down the road.  Which I don't think is an easy thing to do.

I talked to my boss about hosting chipy meetings.  She was very amenable to the idea, but told me that to convince the higher-ups I would have to justify it through the viewpoint of "business reasons".  Has anyone else had to go through this kind of process to convince their company to host a user's group meeting? 

Do you use Python @ work?  Would they like to be viewed in a favorable light amongst Python users in Chicago (and hence, potential hires?)
