After moving away from Portland, Oregon to Akron, Ohio I knew that I was losing a great learning resource with the mighty PDX.pm and it's motley crew of perl hackers. Since I wasn't able to find a Perl Mongers group here I joined the local Linux Users group, although I like that too, it's just not Perl so I've taken matters into my own hands.
I'm proud (and a little nervous) to announce the formation of Rubbercity.pm. Any Akron/Clevo/NE Ohio (or not) Monks who might be interested, can find out more info here:website (until PM.org can aim the world to Rubbercity.pm):

If there is anyone out in the Monastary who lives in or passes through this area and would like to be a speaker please... oh please! let me know.
As usual I have to thank grep for egging me on.markmoon
