You're right about the fatigue and it's my fault for being unclear. The
events won't all be python related. I have contacts with people from other
events so I'm thinking one Python dojo or hackathon, a general themed
hackathon with participation from multiple disciplines and maybe a barcamp
every other month or something. I'm still working out the details and  I've
started hitting up other companies for potential sponsorship.

Still early days. The one thing I don't want to do is step on the toes of
the existing dojo. So please, if you feel this is the case let me know and
we can work something out. Maybe the  python dojo stays as it is and we
concentrate on a Python hackathon on the weekend (which I really like the
idea of).
