Frameworks Evening - Will It Happen?

I normally think of a topic, gather a list of potential speakers, send out some emails and then keep my fingers crossed. This time I’m attempting to put together an evening of talks on the topic of web frameworks in dynamic languages. I’m hoping to get someone to speak on Django, Rails and either Maypole or Catalyst (I don’t know much about either) and a then put them in a room with a crowd of Perl, Python and Ruby developers and see if we can start some conversations.

I’ve started the ball rolling by emailing potential speakers so now comes the awkward part, waiting to see what happens. I’ll post an update in a week or so when I know if it’s got even a chance of happening.
