I am coming just because of the great food in Köln!
Of course I agree with you: when coming to a Perl 
Monger meeting is at least as important to meet 
like-minded people as having the opportunity to 
learn something.  I am also hoping that by coming 
to such meetings, I can help motivating people to 
come too, to learn something, to teach something, 
to do a bit more for the community.  But meeting people I like is #1.
Greetz, Wendy
