I enjoyed you "Skimmable Code" talk and would like to hear "You Fail At
Testing", "Don't Be An Asshole When You Respond To Bug Reports", and the
"Perl, The Good Parts Version". I'm intrigued but can't guess what
"Testing Data With The Sims" is about.

I'd be glad to see more Perl Mongers submit their proposals. The Open
Source Bridge conference provides tracks that can accommodate a broad
range of talks, from very technical "chemistry" discussions about the
inner workings of technologies like the Parrot VM, to pragmatic
"cooking" talks about implementing solutions with the likes of Perl and
Catalyst, to "culture" panels on what it takes to make open source
effective on a social level.
