I'm flying to San Francisco next week to visit Allmydata HQ.

We're thinking of organizing a Sprint, or a Hack Party at Allmydata  
HQ in Potrero Hill Friday evening (the 26th) after work hours (after  
5 o'clock).

We can probably get allmydata.com to buy us all pizza and pop.  Maybe  
beer, who knows.

We're thinking of inviting all the Twisted hackers we can find in the  
San Francisco Bay Area and working on issues from the Twisted trac  
[1].  On the other hand, a lot of the major contributors to Twisted  
live on the East Coast, so perhaps we should pick a different focus.   
We could do something like a Python bugfixing party and see how many  
patches we can submit to fix issues from the Python tracker [2].   
Maybe we can try to lure some of the Google Pythoners up to the City.

So the next steps are:

1.  If you are reading this, and you want to demonstrate some cool  
hack to a group of your peers, share some source code with us, or  
contribute to some Free Software project or other, and you want to do  
it in a social group next Friday evening, then let us know ASAP.

2.  I'll ask Peter how much of what kind of food and beverage the  
company will spring for.  ;-)

3.  I'm going to invite some other social group.  I know!  We'll call  
it a Bay Area P2P Hackers Physical Meeting and invite anyone who  
wants to demo and hack on p2p code.
