I'm interested in sharing knowledge and experiences using Python. I'm
an independent contractor in San Francisco and Python makes up the
bulk of the code I write. I occasionally go to the BayPIGgies
meetings, now hosted by Google in Mt. View. The meetings are usually
quite good but it is a long drive. So, I'm hoping for something like
the BayPIGgies meetings but here in San Francisco.

Sounds like a good plan to me. I can't attend a meeting tomorrow night anyway.

Web application development in the Energy Industry.

I always enjoy seeing presentations about how others are using Python
in their day-to-day work, no matter the level. Those talks seem to
touch on many different aspects of Python and how they relate to
getting work done.

Unfortunately, no. My office is too small to accommodate a meeting.
Thanks for taking the lead.
