At RubyConf, a few Northwesterners got together to talk about doing
another regional codefest.  There seemed to be enough interest to make it
worthwhile, so here's a kickoff message/invitation.

We'd like to get together one Saturday in January in Seattle (exact date
and place TBD).  Some of the Seattle.rb folks are doing language audits,
comparing other languages to Ruby and looking for features Ruby could use.
We'll discuss these audits, compile a list of good features to implement,
write up stories, then meet together in January to implement them.

I've set up a mailing list to do all the coordination work on, if you're
interested please sign up at janhackfest-subscribe / kohalabs.com -- you're
welcome to lurk too.

Hopefully, we'll find some neat new toys to make available to the ruby
crowd.
