according to my little research Austin.pm is in light sleep mode.
The latest thing the web site mentions is a meeting in
December 2008 - more than 2 years ago - but the mailing list
indicates some more activity.

What about trying to use the opportunity of the Texas Linux Fest
to try to increase the activity in the group?

See the CFP for the Texas Linux Fest below.

Just to compare, SCALE in Los Angeles will have 2 Perl related
talks - one of them by chromatic, sponsored by the
Perl Ecosystem Group - and they will also have an LA.pm / Perl booth.

It would be nice to have a few Perl related talk here too and
to have a Perl / Austin.pm booth - if it is possible.
