That sounds great. If you wish to announce it on Twitter then if you begin
your tweet with @europython it will be retweeted.

As some of the organizers know, my EuroPython keynote (Thursday at 9am
in the main session room, Adrian Boult Hall) will take the form of a
Q&A session with questions asked online. I did this at the last PyCon
using Twitter, which was less than ideal. This time I plan to do it
using Google Moderator (http://www.google.com/moderator/) which lets
people pose questions ahead of time and vote on them.

My idea is to set up a Moderator page for this Q&A and open it up for
questions sometime Wednesday (my experience is that opening up
Moderator too early has a bad effect on the ranking of the questions).

My only reason to post here is to make sure that none of the
EuroPython organizers have already set up such a Moderator page;
assuming they haven't I will set it up myself tomorrow, and announce
it here and on Twitter (someone else will have to update the
EuroPython wiki and hopefully the program).

PS. This email thread is purely to coordinate the Moderator page.
Questions posted via email will be IGNORED (with points off for
ignoring my request). Please wait for the Moderator page.
