I will try and remember to bring my printer if anyone feels there is a need to show printed output.  I will have a couple of simple packages, one for LEGO fans called LeoCAD [http://www.leocad.org/index.htm] as well as the OpenOffice SDraw.

Each person, or small group would take a different language, script or compiler, and bring in the 'finished product' to compare.  We could look at speed, size, and interface to see the different ideas we have come up with.  Any one else have some input on this?
