    This thread is for posting ideas and general brainstorming about what
    kinds
    of talks folks would be interested in seeing at PyCon 2007. The idea is
    to
    inspire volunteer speakers to propose talks that they might not
    otherwise
    realize would be popular, and to give PyCon organizers a whiff of fresh
    community feedback.

    So, what do you want to see? What will attract you to travel to PyCon?
    Or for that matter, what does your boss need to see on the schedule
    to allow you to expense the conference?

    The deadline for talks proposals is October 31.

    The deadline for tutorial proposals is November 15.

    Remember, tutorials are half-day events on the day prior to the main
    PyCon days, and have a separate admission price. The tutorial teachers
    do receive some financial compensation for their time and preparation.

    Also, consider the possibility of panel discussions, which would
    compete for time with normal talks but might not require the same
    kind of speaker preparation or proposal. Who in the Python community
    would you like to see in a panel discussion or "town-hall" style event?

    Btw, there is also a wiki for consolidating ideas on talks:
