I've been talking with the organizer of perladvent.org, Jerrad
Pierce, and he is too busy to write any entries until mid-December.
In order to help him out, we need to get some more community
involvement in writing advent entries for at least the first 14 days
of December. The entries are typically pretty short, so they don't
require too much time. Of course, they need to be well written and
it's always nice if there is a holiday slant to the story. You can
see examples at perladvent.org. If you interested, there is a huge
list of topic ideas that I can point you to.... just let me know.
And finally, if just being an active member of the Perl community
isn't enough incentive, last year O'Reilly was kind enough to give
each of the advent authors a free book of the author's choice. I
haven't heard anything about that happening again this year, but it's
always a possibility.
If you all want, we can have an advent writing evening at my
place. I'll provide egg-nog and a few snacks if you can bring a
computer and the will to write an entry. We'd have to do it early
this week in order to give Jerrad time to get the entries edited and
posted for December 1st.
