I'm still up for this - are others?

May 1st is just four weeks away, so seems a little close. Also seems close if the PDX event is still on (is it?). If so - weekend of May 22nd? or June 5th?

Aside from helping secure a space, I'd be happy to help. In particular, I think it would be cool to offer a Haskell "teach-in". Something like a half day, perhaps at one of the hacker locations, where we teach intro-Haskell with some slides, some talking, and lots of Haskell folks walking around to help people 1-on-1. We get them to install Haskell Platform, and write a few functions, and then perhaps something tiny bit bigger...
