I would be willing to do a quick comparison of Python and Boo. But if the number of language comparisons is already too much, I wouldn't mind getting bumped to next month.

Thursday's Meeting will be our best yet. Nonetheless, the format will be an
ambitious one. I need your help, ASAP.

It looks like we will finally get an language comparison lightening talk
session. Yay! I started an outline of or Topics:


What I really need is two things:

	1)  A presentation more capable than Carl or myself to do an introduction to
Py3K.  Is there anyone local (or remote who will travel) willing to present on
this very important topic? Any core Python people out there?  It would be great
if we can have: overview, examples, and a FAQ section.  This can be sliced and
diced anyway we like: between multiple speakers or all at once. I just feel it
is our duty to address this topic. If nobody is found I will make due. But,
please, help me look.

	2)  Secondly, Those willing to to quick (15 min) comparisons to  Python to any
other language. Like I said, the rough list is started. I would really like to
get 10 or some, some serious and some not so serious.   There *WILL* be a couple
of areas each presenter will need to address.  This should be really fun.

We have a great new venue Roosevelt University Historic Auditorium Building on
Michigan Avenue and Congress--I am also the host since it is my alma mater.
Everyone please try and contribute to make this the best meeting yet and to
welcome 2009.
