I missed this BOF :-(

Madison.pm attendance can be attributed to JT Smith's efforts in 
organizing meetings.  Also, it doesn't hurt that he is known for paying 
for food and beer.  :-)

I was pondering the idea of creating a local $work.pm.  This might not 
work for small development shops, but it would be especially useful for 
large organizations - such as a university, or a even large division of 
an organization - where there are disparate perl programmers that would 
benefit from a perl mongers group but don't think to ever attend.  I 
haven't worked up the courage, or found a topic, to present anything at 
Madison.pm, but perhaps a $work.pm would help me to vet topics and 
practice presenting.  Ideally, a $work.pm would help make people more 
aware of the existence and the value of the local City.pm
