Great idea! I, for one would like to look at BioRuby on the JVM.

Another topic would be integrationg the brilliant
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/. Yes, it is Python, but we could
bridge that.

Would it be an idea to have talks? We could do that in the form of
videos. I don't know what people would like to present, but if you are
interested in giving, or hearing, some talk, we could make them
available just before the conference day. Videos of 10-20 minutes,
preferably a code walk/tutorial. 

Who is game?

If anyone is interested I could do a talk on either

1. Ruby actors for parallelization
2. The (not yet high performance) genome browser plugin (GFF3)

Maybe Raoul can present the plugin system, and Naohisa a code walk on
certain modules? Anyone interested in a presentation on Rubyshell
inside the browser (Rails)?

If it is successful, we could make this an annual happening.
