Hello UKPU,

I've been reading this list for ages but rarely (never?) post anything. I'm a 
music postgraduate student at the UEA in Norwich and use Python not only for 
my research (which is in computer models of music representation) but I've 
also done odd web/database jobs for the university using Python.

Someone could set up a sort of calendar wiki so that potential speakers can 
post proposed talks (demos, etc.) which can then be confirmed (or moved or 
rejected, etc.) by a small team of organisers/editors. This would benefit 
people coming from a distance as well.
