Re: spread this: Indianapolis Python Workshop announcement

(leaving Catherine's excellent "forward me!" email at the bottom for the 
benefit of the mpw-staff members who haven't seen it yet)

I turned this into a blog post at 
in case a web version helps; it should be hitting a bunch of large FOSS 
blog aggregators shortly (including Women In Free Software) so fingers 
are crossed.

I also reached out to the organizers of http://flourishco...­ to 
pass the word to their attendees in Chicago this weekend, and they also 
sent it on to ChiPy (and invited us to send them Indy stuff in the 
future since we're nearby enough that it makes sense). Will keep on 
pushing & publicizing... thank you so much to everyone who's been making 
this come together!
