Hi Jonathan,
We have rules for posting jobs to the NYC Python list.

1) you must name the company.
2) you must be hiring for 50% python
3) you must be within commuting distance from NYC

I hadn't really thought about the stealth-startup possibility.  I
still tend to think that in this case you should attend our meetings,
or host a meeting, or sponsor pizza or something.
