[WindyCity-pm] Chicago Perl Workshop 2007?

At the Perl lunch on Friday, some proposals for a workshop in December
were floated (since it's almost 4 months between PPW and Frozen Perl,
and who can go without a Perl conference for that long!?). Here were
* A 1 or 2 day mini-conference at PFX (or Hacklab? in Pilsen). This
would be free if we can get presenters for free.
* A hackathon at the youth hostel downtown. Perhaps we could do some
* Paid, open-enrollment training by Stonehenge at a hotel downtown.
I would like to do something that is Friday/Saturday/Sunday since that
is long enough to convince people from other cities to show up. My pipe
dream is a 3 day hackathon, where half the day (or so) is open hacking,
and the other half is structured talks. That might be a pain to
organize, though, so I'm interested in other ideas. The idea is to keep
it interesting, educational, low-cost, close to downtown, and easy to
organize (since most of us are busy organizing YAPC).
BTW, the idea that inspired this was London's Perl Teach-In and LPW:
http://conferences.yapceurope.org/lpw2007/. Apparently they are
expecting 200 people! Awesome!
Anyway, your feedback would be appreciated. What are you interested
in? What would you like to do to help? Thanks in advance!
