mirod, the author of XML::Twig, and just another Toulouse Perl Monger, is
in New Jersey for a few weeks. His availability in limited to Tuesdays
through Thursdays next week and September 13th-15th.
While I'd like us to have a meeting soon, I think it would make more sense
to wait until September to invite mirod to a meeting.
So I open up the floor to a few issues. By the way, an acronym I'll be
using liberally when I ask questions about holding meetings is: ISWW ("if
so, when and where").
1. should we have a meeting before the end of August? ISWW?
2. should we have a meeting on September 13th, 14th, or 15th? ISWW?
3. when should we invite mirod?
4. do we want mirod to be a guest or a speaker?
I have a feeling our first meeting is going to be introductions and
discussion on how to "advertise" the group to local interested parties
(i.e. college students and co-workers); this is why I think we should get
that out of the way before mirod stops by.
Regarding the 4th question, most PM groups have "speaker" visitors who
have a module or concept that they talk to the group about. Personally,
I'd rather have mirod as a guest and let each of us yap about whatever it
is we'd like to yap about.
My preferences, then, are:
1. yes, either NEXT Wednesday or NEXT Thursday, anywhere in Mercer County
is fine with me (I'm a relative newcomer to the area).
2. yes, any of those is days is fine with me, meeting preferably in a more
northern location so that mirod doesn't have to put up with Route 1 any
longer than he should.
3. on the september date
