How about we not cancel the meeting. If no one is organized enough to
present a regular talk, then we can have informal discussions about our
projects, and cool stuff (e.g. pugs, parrot and so on).

I recently gave a talk on some Perl6 features at work. If there's
interest, I can give that (and likely learn more about Perl6 myself,
from some of our smart audience).

It could be fun to have a mini-hack-a-thon, and write a few P6 tests.
