The next downtown Perl Mongers meeting is in 2 weeks, and this is the 
last meeting before YAPC is held in town in June.  As I suggested last 
month, this would be a great time for anyone who is interested in giving 
a lightning talk at YAPC to come on down and practice it in advance.

The deadline for submitting a lightning talk for YAPC is still open (in 
fact, I don't think the actual deadline has been set yet), so it's still 
possible to give a talk there.

But even if you're not keen on talking at YAPC, giving a lightning talk 
is a great way to get your feet wet when it comes to giving 
presentations.  If you're not familiar with lightning talks, this page 
gives an explanation, along with a great list of suggestions for topics:


So, is anyone interested?
