ok, then - I'll start some slides, and see how this shapes up.   If I like
it, I'll register the "make a talk" on Chipy.org.   If it goes well, I'll
expand, submit for PyCon.

While I'm at it, I have a "different" talk, "What's Love got to do with
it?" - sort of encouraged by Paul Fenwick's talk at OSCON ("Fear,
Uncertainty, and Dopamine"), and further discussions with him at the
survivor's breakfast.

I'll be doing a "What's Love got to do with it" in San Francisco on Nov.
10th, and would also like to submit for PyCon (but it really deserves an
"all" audience).

If you're up for hearing it, I'd appreciate it, reactions, feedback.

What's it all about?  Love, explained for techy's, and applied to community
building, and non-human systems ("love" in your code & APIs - it works
everywhere!).    Love is functional, not attributional, that is it is
behaviors, not a feeling (http://davericho.com - see the "free book" p.72,
 about "The 5A's" - Dave will be with me in the S.F. un-talk / discussion).
   If it's functional, what are those functions?   How did they arise (e.g.
what was their purpose?)   What does this say about open source
communities?   And - hey!   Where is the manual!?!

I'll provide an overview, some chuckles, some real examples, and the
introductory portion of the manual.
~20 min?
