There are lots of notes by now.  And that is the unfortunate part,
you have to subscribe to read them.  Plus the whole list is in an
uproar as part of discovering that PyCON lost a bunch of money this
year.  But since I know some people on this list have strong ideas
about how a poster session at pycon should be organised, I thought
it was time to put the word out that now is when such things are
being discussed.

The initial article was mine.  I said that I would like PyCON better
if there was some way to get a track of 'what have you been doing
lately'.  The sort of talks that would not get accepted to PyCON
because they are not polished enough, or not of interest to a large
enough segment of the community.  Somebody suggested posters, and
the whole topic took off from there.
