I ran it through Babblefish yesterday and came out about 95% there. I'm
running it by a friend to catch the rest. I was disappointed. It was
pretty uninformative documentation.

From previous posts, it looks like there is a purely Python-only
interest. Plone is certainly an interest not common to everyone.

It sounds like a loud pop to me. It looks like you might get to kiss
archetypes at the end of the week but not get invited in for coffee. For
$2500 plus airfare (plus somehow get from Vancouver to Whistler) plus
accomodations plus ramen noodles, I'd need to see a more detailed syllabus.

That certainly has been the format so far. And I think Tom has had to
really beat the bushes at times to get someone to step up to the bar
each month on a topic? I thought the open disccusion was great this
month. I'd meet for that anytime. And if someone's got a topic to
present they can announce in advance, so much the better.

I think what you suggest would be pretty meaningful. :) Next month or
Hoo-hoo! That's so funny I think somebody would have to use it.
I use those logos in presentations all the time and never have checked
out if that's legal.
