I agree with Indy, in that a habit once broken stays broken, having little socials after are good, but to discontinue meetings because we have no speaker is not a good idea. I suggest people bring their "questions" for all to answer, beefs, funny perl stories, perl job horror stories, list of places you'd never interview for (there still on jobs.perl.org) ever even with a gun to your head.
My point, no speaker is not a problem, its a chance to widen the conversation, just have a chairperson manage the shairing and make them at least put up their hands when they try to should each other down that we don't need case statements in perl 6:)
Let the fight begin :)
