  That gives me an idea for the October meeting.  Assuming that no other talks appear then maybe I'll go through some of the Perl-related Prezi presentations that are available.  If there are any good ones.  :-)    This might give us a feel as to if Prezi can be used in a technical talk or if it is indeed "lights and glitter."

  After looking at several of the presentations I am beginning to think "l&g" ... linear thoughts on a board that moves around too much.
