Do you code on your own time?

Do you *actually* code on your own time, or do you plan to, but spend
more time cruising Digg and Slashdot?

Jason Huggins, from the Chicago Python group ( http://chipy.org/ ) had
the realization that motivation to code is like motivation to exercise
-- it might be easier if you get together with somebody else.

So he put together TechCoffee, which is, basically, a time to get
together and code. You don't have to work on the same thing as everybody
else (indeed, Jason's planning on working on a patch for a Python
project, i'm going to be hacking some Common Lisp code), just make a
commitment to be there, bring a laptop, and spend time coding instead of
surfing or slacking.

TechCoffee is going to meet monday mornings from 6-8am.

For those of you still reading, the first one is going to be at the
Caribou Coffee, on LaSalle St, just north of Lake St.

Jason and i are committed to be there at 6am. We'd be happy if others
joined us.
