Boston Python Life

I still haven't been to a Cambridge python meetup in a long time and I just blocked Wednesdays again by signing up for a bowling league that night. A man has to have his priorities.

Will G's Nomadic Computing Herd now has a schedule. I've worked with Will on open source projects in the past and lived five minutes away from him for years but we've never met. Doug Napoleone quipped at PyCon "I travel 1000 miles to see people that live next door." Exactly (Doug also lives five minutes away and I hadn't seen him since last PyCon).

EuroPython, Maybe

I submitted a talk proposal for EuroPython. It is a longer version of the lightning talk I didn't give at PyCon (slots filled up really super early).

If it is accepted I'll be in Lithuania. I would like to go regardless but PyCon cost 2k+ and because the Fed has been printing dollars for the last 20 years I suspect a trip to Europe would cost even more than that.
