Python/PSF at SANE 2004 - Announcement and a request for help

At this years' SANE conference (System Administration and Networking 
Europe, www.sane.nl) in Amsterdam there will be a Free and Open Source 
Bazar on wednesday evening, september 29, from 18.30 until 22.00. The 
bazar will be open to the general public (i.e. free as in beer), and 
about 20 FOSS groups will be present. In addition, Richard Stallman 
will present a talk.

Among the groups present is, you guessed it, the Python Software 
Foundation. And the person who volunteered for this is, you guessed it, 
me. The intention is to provide visitors with information on both the 
Python language and the PSF. The setting is informal: there will be a 
tabletop and a backdrop we can use to put material up. In addition 
there are rooms available to hold BOF sessions.

That concludes the announcement bit, on to the request bit: I'm looking 
for people who'd be willing to join me in manning the stand. And, 
ideally, also with preparing some material to put up on the backdrop 
and/or demonstrations we could stage (I can supply the computer, 
provided it's a Macintosh:-) But if you'd just like to loiter at the 
stand to tell people how wonderful Python is that's also very welcome.

Please let me know if you're willing to help,
--
