Big +1 here and we'd be up for helping to organize!

I also know that there were discussions from last OKFestival / OKCon about
organizing a dedicated data wranglers event tentatively named "DataConf" at
the time  (perhaps Small Data Conf given our inclinations!). Ideas was of
an informal, community organized data conference for data wranglers.
Perhaps start a separate thread but there seem definite complementarities
with this.

I've added myself - I could suggest some more data-oriented topic areas but
I plan to hold off for the time being :-)

To follow up Michael's suggestion may be worth a post on this that we can
then circulate to gauge interest! (Instructions for adding blog posts here:
