Howdy Mongers,
An echoing repeat of thanks to Hostgator for the pizza, venue, and
sponsorship of our business meetings.  Frank Braswell of the Informa
company presented about embedded devices, the Internet of Things, and
possible ways to integrate Perl into the mix.
Jack, the cloud storage software you are thinking about is called
Xively (sounds like it starts with a Z).
Our next relaxed social meeting will be over beer on Tuesday Feb 11th,
6:30pm at BBRovers.
Our next business meeting will be at HostGator's offices again on
Tuesday Feb 25th, and Allan Cochrane will present about Mojolicious.
ARE YOU ON FACEBOOK???  Join our new Austin.pm group!
Perling,~ Will the Chill, Austin.pm Prez

Pretty good meeting tonight. Thanks again to HostGator for a real
place to have a meeting ( and the pizza, and the drinks ).
I'm sorry for being so inept at expressing myself in technical terms
sometimes. The web services architecture I was trying to ask about is
the Web Service Description Language and Simple Object Access
Protocol. I wonder how SOAP services might be used in a Catalyst
application or for the transfer/access of massive amounts of data that
Frank Braswell described tonight. The relevant Perl module is
