Purdue Perl Mongers,

You can get a preview of how Perl 6 will be different from Perl 5
by reading Larry Wall's Apocalypses (there are three so far):
    Apocalypse 1
    Apocalypse 2
    Apocalypse 3

Damian Conway, globe-trotting Perl evangelist has had his teaching
contract at Monash University bought out for another year to do all-Perl
stuff.  Here are his comments on Apocalypses 2 and 3 along with sample
Perl 6 code.
    Exegesis   2
    Exegesis   3

Is there any interest in having meetings, offices, etc?  I could give
a "Beginning Perl" talk or "Beginning mod_perl" talk.  Would any one
else like to volunteer to give a talk?

If you have ideas regarding it or would like to work on updating it
please contact me---I'm temporarily busy working as a technical editor
for two mod_perl books for Sams Publishing and coordinating remodeling
my home.  It will be a while before I have much time to spend on it.
