+1 on 'good' CS related announcements.
I would argue that Python was once a somewhat
'exotic' language; therefore, early and innovative
language adopters might have an immediate interest
in the announcement under discussion.
Let's say there was a *great* announcement on machine
vision science; would this be of interest to the list?
To some, yes, to others, no. (of course, OpenCV with
Python bindings might be cool to all....).
It's a qualitative call, and NYC is /becoming/ an
interesting place, CS wise, such that it would be
a shame to preclude potentially cool CS/engineering
Just an opinion....
