I posted this a few days ago, but here it goes again.

Damian Conway, sometimes known as "The Mad Scientist of Perl", will be in 
Chicago on October 8th, giving a talk titled "Quantum Superpositions and the 
First Virtue". This talk is free, and is being organized by the Chicago Perl 
Mongers group.

Conway is the author of "Object Oriented Perl", and is one of the most 
entertaining speakers I have ever seen. His talks are funny, mind-boggling and 
very enlightening. He does things with Perl that seem impossible, and you will 
learn a lot just by listening to him. As an example, he has written a Perl 
module (Lingua::Romana::Perligata, which hasn't been released yet) to write 
Perl programs in Latin!

Unfortunately I will be out of town that day, but if several people are 
interested, we can get organized to car pool and send a group to the 

I have already heard from 3-4 people who are interested. If you would like to 
go, let me know as soon as possible, and we will go from there.

The talk is on Sunday, October 8th, from 3-5PM in the CitiBank Tower in 
Chicago. For more details, see
