[Phoenix-pm] Staying in California

Phoenix PMers,

Well, my wife has resigned her position at ASU so that we are now  
staying in California for the foreseeable future. I have to admit,  
there are a lot of things about Phoenix that I am not going to miss  
(starting with 100 degree temps), but I will miss being able to  
attend Phoenix.pm meetings.

For example, I'd be really excited to hear Andy Lester or other  
luminaries come talk. It's hard to explain the airfare, hotel, and  
car to my budget, though. :-(

However, I've really enjoyed being on the mailing list this past  
year, even though I'm not in AZ. I read the postings after meetings  
(when there are any) and loved the writeups from YAPC recently. You  
may also have heard me rant about the lack of any perlmongers groups  
in Silicon Valley (wouldn't you think they'd gather, here of all  
places?). So, if it's OK with you guys, I'd like to stay on the  
mailing list as an "emeritus" member.

And, I'll happily chip in $20 to bring in a speaker, if someone tapes  
the talk and posts it where I can hear/see it.

-- Mike
