    In addition to the topics listed below, I'd like to exhibit some
 interesting beginner-level "one-liners" provided by audience members,
 so please come prepared with your favorites.

    Also, if anybody would like to do a lighting talk on a Beginner's
level topic, you're welcome to do so.  In other words, I won't need all
the time for myself, so I'll be happy to share! 8-}

Western Electric division, and since 1986 as the founder and CEO
of Consultix, Inc. (one of the "Big Three" Perl training companies).
