That would be interesting (emacs wins :D).  I had in mind a brief introduction 
to Haskell, since it's a very compelling language to learn (whereas Python 
and Ruby are pretty much Perl with some minor syntactic differences).  
Learning Haskell will change the way you think about programming, which is 
always a good thing.  Did I mention it's 100x faster than Perl on average? :)

Another possible topic is web testing (prompted by the next question on the

$,.=reverse qw[Jonathan tsu rehton lre rekca Rockway][$_].[split //,
