Hi Tres,

I think it's fair to say that the Portland Plone User's group could be very
interested in having this talk in Portland and we would love to co-meet with
the local Python group as well :) I'm going to query Plone group to confirm.

Do you have an idea of a minimum amount you're thinking of to help defer
your total costs? We have a small budget at the moment and no real income.
We might be able to do a bit of fundraising if your needs are above our
current budget but I'd like to have some idea of what you would need
minimally for this to work for you all :)

Also, are you planning on going up to Seattle to do the same? I'm asking
because to be honest our turnout to regular meetings has been rather low; we
hope having you folks give this great talk would boost our attendance (at
least for that night ;-) So along those lines, another approach would be to
encourage Seattle Plonistas to come your talk in Portland -- but if you're
planning to be there as well, that's fine too :) Either way, it will just
help us with out planning, etc.

Let me know and I'll follow-up as soon as I hear back from local users :-)
