I second that - the open spaces should be *fun* - the main conference
is serious business through and through - sure, we could lighten it a
bit, but really the atmosphere at the last two has made *me* actually
feel like a part of the community, and a community of people who like
to have fun, and learn.

Also, seeing Gary yell bullshit is pretty much mandatory for all future pycons.
