While I've always been open to trying to host (I could probably do it  
if I asked), the sad truth is that the UofC is difficult to get to for  
those not in Hyde Park, particularly after hours.  If the group's  
interested, I can check with the powers that be and see what we can  

I think the realities are that it'd be easier to focus attention on  
faculty and staff at academic institutions and get them to come to our  
meetings -- but there are challenges in that too... firstly, planning  
a bit more in advance so that we can pitch cool topics like matplotlib  
and spread the word, when appropriate.
