NOTE: Please be considerate of the servers at IHOP: Don't change seats once you sit down. Get your orders in early so they're not slammed in the kitchen. Tip generously. They don't expect everyone to order food, but a good 80% of us should be having some kind of dinner.
Update: James Mertz will be practicing his PyBeach talk: Protected Python: It's time we had "the talk" about security."
EDIT: James is unable to make it today. But there will be a short talk by Michael Starch.
There will be time for other short talks or discussions, as well.
Also, Southern California Linux Expo Early Bird rate of $75.00 ($37.50 after SGVLG promo code) is good through January 12th. I don't recall how much it goes up after that.
