As far as I know, the hackathon at YAPC::NA_2012 might be the first two-day
hackathon ever at a YAPC. With that amount of time, and the brain power of the
Perl community, I wonder what might be invented there.Â
Wisconsins history is filled with lots of technological pioneers, whether they
be tinkerers, inventors or entrepreneurs:
* The Valentines_brought_the_first_telephone_network_to_WisconsinÂ because
Richard Valentine thought it would be a neat way to stay in touch with
* The first_typewriter_was_invented_and_built_in_Wisconsin. Where would the
internet be today without the typewriter, I wonder?
* Lots of the great brands you know and love were created in Wisconsin,
such as Harley-Davidson Motorcycles, Miller Beer, Mercury Marine, Trek
Bikes, Ashely Furniture, Briggs & Stratton Motors, Kraft Foods, Kohler
Plumbing Fixtures, Snap-on Tools and many more.Â
* The ice_cream_sundae_was_born_in_Wisconsin! How tasty is that? Â
These days were at the forefront of cancer_research, quantum_computing,Â nano-
technologies, and ill-advised_politics. So why shouldnt Wisconsin also be the
place where the next great Perl app is born?
