in reply to Monks and Mongers

Here in Paris, France, not a whole lot. We have a pretty vibrant scene, meeting one or more times a month, drinking beer, discussing linguistics, literature, mathematics, information technology, oh, and sometimes even Perl.

A number of Paris "mongueurs" are active on Perl Monks, but I think that most people are scared off by the language barrier. In its present form, Perl Monks will always cater only to those comfortable conversing in English.

On the other hand, there are a number of programmers on the list who are doing some truly awesome things with Perl, but you'll never hear about it (unless indirectly) on Perl Monks. So I think the Perl Mongers are an even greater force than Perl Monks. They are grass roots organisations that are that must closer to "the street".

The only downside is that you can't ++ a particularly good reply on a mailing list.
