Ahhh, sorry guys! OK, here's what I had in mind.
+ There will be a thread (NG BBS) posted at midnight tonight, East Coast Time. (11:00pm Central.) (I'll post a link in this thread and the main newspost.)
+ In the thread all the participants for the Game Jam will be listed under their appropriate jobs.
+ The programmers will each post their picks (1 artist, 1 musician, 1 wildcard). When I say "first come first serve" I mean whoever posts first gets to make their first pick. (I will be trying to update the pool of people every page.)
+ After each programmer has made their first picks, we will have another round of picking. We'll keep doing rounds of picking until every person who signed up has a team.
+ I'm sure we'll get to a point where there will be a programmer who signed up who hasn't come online to make his pick, and it'll be holding up the next round of picks. If it comes to that, we'll give the missing people an hour to make their picks and then we'll skip them.
When I was writing up the Jam stuff, I really wanted to have all the programmers meet up on some chat and make their picks one at a time, but I was reminded that most of us can barely expect all the people who signed up to make it to first day of jams, it'd be a disaster waiting to happen to expect all the programmers to show up at a specific time on a thread or chat.
Lemme know if you guys have any questions or comments.

Looking at Archawn's organization ideas, I'm curious how other people plan to communicate/collaborate with their teams...
I'm going to push for my team to use Google Plus this time as I've grown to like it a lot.
