Rackspace has given us (volunteers who run and help with pyvideo. basically
Will, Carl and me right now) an account, and I think streaming python user
groups could fall in the category of things that the account can be used
for (I could ask). Right now we run part of this on ec2 and I think funds
have only seriously been a problem when we forgot to turn something off and
incurred $500.

Follow up with Carl, Tim, Roman (anyone else?) for what technology
contributions would be helpful. I'm ignorant for what they'd really want. I
know I think it would be a handy idea if someone wrote some operational
stuff to help. It would be nice to be able to run a script to deploy some
streaming stuff and have it ready to go.
