19:59 rbuels pyrimidine: mst is in pdx right now, and over a beer he thought that we could totally get one or two gsoc students to help with dynamiting the monolith.
20:00 rbuels that might be optimistic, but it sounds like something worth pursuing
20:06 pyrimidine rbuels: that might eb worth pursuing, either through the OBF or TPF; key for OBF is finding someone who could head it up (I would if I had time, but it is simply impossible for me to do it).
20:06 pyrimidine s/eb/be/
20:08 rbuels i probably can.
20:09 rbuels as long as the students are good and not too needy
20:09 rbuels i would want to find students that are more devs than bio-people
20:09 pyrimidine rbuels: if you are interested, maybe contact Hilmar Lapp about what to do.  Duke Leto headed up TPF last year for SoC, so maybe him as well.
20:09 * rbuels nods
20:10 rbuels mst recommended requesting 3 or 4 students
20:10 rbuels and expecting a failure from 1-2 of them
20:10 rbuels lol
20:10 rbuels i don't know about coordinating that many
20:11 pyrimidine with NESCent you'll get a mix, with TPF you'll get more devs.  I would stick with a small number.
20:11 pyrimidine come up with some proposals, maybe post something to the mail list to gather ideas, etc
20:12 pyrimidine nothing wrong with having a bioinfo type, you just need one that skews more in the CS direction than bio, and knows their shit
20:20 pyrimidine rbuels: final note before I get back to work, and I think I mentioned this in SD GMOD, but putting up a list of ideas is good
20:21 rbuels pyrimidine: you going to yapc?
20:21 pyrimidine if anything, it gives them an idea of what you're aiming for, none of this 'I want to write a parser for obscure format biofoo, give me my $5K'
20:21 * rbuels nods
20:21 pyrimidine re: yapc, not sure, seeing how the money goes
20:22 pyrimidine I have some money for meetings, it may be between BOSC and YAPC
20:22 rbuels probably bosc would be better then
20:23 rbuels (though yapc is pretty dirt cheap)
20:23 pyrimidine yes, I may try to foot the bill on my own for that one
20:23 pyrimidine and I could drive to it (it's in Ohio iirc)
20:24 rbuels yeah
20:24 rbuels columbus.
