Hey Sam,

Sounds good to me - and I don't think it will hurt attendance at all.
I'd venture a guess that a large percentage of the motivation for going 
to the meetings is social, rather than just content.

Also, it might help both future speakers and new attendees get a handle 
on what has been talked about before.

I second Alfie on the perl Wiki as the right place to put it.


[ BTW It seems a similar thing was attempted before - if not quite as 
detailed as you're suggesting:
