IRC works well for me. Evidently, this works:
/connect irc.freenode.net
/join pyar2

Currently (at 9:34AM, Monday, Aug. 4, 2008) there's a room called pyar2 on
irc.freenode.net. With one user, @waynew in it.

I don't know if there would be much interest, but I wonder about a panel

Once we get the poster, I can see about talking to the computing class at
the A+ Charter school in maumelle. I'm sure I could put one up at the
Maumelle Library as well.
