After inheriting the San Diego Perl Mongers web site, I’m finally starting to work on it. My first task was to remove the frames. While I was at it, I re-organized the information a bit to (hopefully) make it very easy for visitors to find what they’re looking for.
I have a few ideas for the future of the web site. Some of these include a wiki, a blog, a book review section, anything really. Not everything will be worth pursuing. We can have a wiki on a main Perl site; we can set up individual blogs on use Perl (or Blogger or LiveJournal or whatever). However, I think it would be nice to have a web site we can call our own.
I’m open to ideas, and I try to be receptive to comments and suggestions, either on our mailing list or sent directly to me.

Tonight I hosted the San Diego Perl Mongers meeting at the auditorium in the building where I work. It was an experiment, and a successful one at that. We had an attendance of 16 people, which is quite good for our group. I suspect some of that was due to the free pizza provided by my director (thanks Keith!).
Since we had the auditorium available to us, one of our members was nice enough to say a few words about his business and how Perl has helped him to succeed. Much of the evening was devoted to chatting about whatever Perl-related thoughts came to mind. I floated the idea of hosting a booth at FOSSCON, but that’s still too far out to really talk seriously about it.
I’m extremely pleased with how well the venue worked out. We may not have the meeting there every month, but it’s nice to have it available so we can start adding technical meetings to our calendar.

After attending OSCON last month, and having the usual fun with my geek friends from around the globe, I decided that I should start attending YAPC. As it so happens, the Los Angeles Perl Mongers are kicking around the idea of hosting YAPC::NA in their city. Since LA is nearby for me, I’d like to see that happen.
Looks like Chicago.pm has thrown their hat into the ring as well.
Update: I guess the LA.pm bid never gained any traction.
