I've been lurking on this list for quite a while, but it's so low-traffic I
had kind of forgotten I was subscribed to it.  An intro thread is a great
idea to change that!

My name's Kevin Horn and I'm one of the co-organizers of DFW Python
(Dallas/Ft Worth, Texas).  I'm also one of the organizers of PyTexas and a
board member of the newly formed PyTexas Foundation.  Shameless plug:
PyTexas will be held in College Station, TX (yes, again) September 25th -
27th this year.  Come and see us!

I recognize quite a few names here, and I've even met a few of you in
person.  Nice to see you all (in some cases, again).

Sheila M: Don't you also help maintain pyvideo.org?  Thanks for that.
Also, office hours at a hackerspace is an idea I hadn't considered.  Could
I convince you to elaborate on that (perhaps in a separate thread)?

Barbara: Any chance you can come teach a class at PyTexas again this year?
We missed you last year...

Randy: I really enjoyed your talks at PyTexas last year (I actually just
rewatched one of them last week).  Hope to see you again, though I know
it's a bit of a hike for you.

Nice to "meet" the rest of you!
