    I'm giving a talk on the Perl track.

    I have a talk (Smalltalk Persistence) and a tutorial (intro to Smalltalk Seaside). Nothing on Perl.. OSCON doesn't want me talking about Perl any more, apparently.
      OSCON doesn't want me talking about Perl any more, apparently.

      I wouldn't take it personally. OSCON's Perl track has been disappearing almost as fast as its parent company's line of Perl books.

        Are the books disappearing because there's nothing to write about or because no one is buying them anymore?
      I'll be there to check that out for sure - cheers

    I'll be there on a day pass on Wednesday, at least. I will be there the entire five days, if I get a job before then. (One of the things I write into the contract is time off for OSCon.) I am holding off on registering until late May, though.

    San Jose a great locale? My friends there say it's a He... not quite as nice as Arcata for example.

    I'll send you a $20 Amazon gift certificate when you come back if every single time someone brings up Ruby you say, "Ruby? ...Ruby? Can't say I've heard of it. Is it a fork off Python?"

      I found San Jose to be a rather sleepy little town - although much fun to be had in a 45 minute drive in almost any direction!

    I am fortunate enough to be going this year. Will be there all five days. Haven't been in a few years and am very stoked. Hope to see you monks there.

[marto]: more so than the previous show I saw
[Corion]: marto: Well, I think they go a tour every two years and I think it's hard to even get a connection with the crowd at a 20k people concert... But maybe after this time I'll stop too ;)
[Corion]: I still have to see the Pet Shop Boys live before they stop touring at all
[marto]: yeah, I think that as a group creatively they're done. I can understand how it'd be hard to stop the process, album/tour, album/tour, if that's pretty much all you've ever done :)
[marto]: Corion yes I saw them Pandemonium_Tour
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, and I doubt that they'll ever get back to something like Violator/Songs of Faith and Devotion - it would either alienate their "regular" crowd, or be "too much Violator" ;)
LanX needs to see Freddy Mercury'
[Corion]: marto: Yeah, I have that on DVD even, and I missed them last year because I was in London at the time ironically ;)
[marto]: put me in the mood to listen to this now :)
[Corion]: LanX: Well, grab a shovel :)
