Message Body:

Thanks to Ken for his talk on OpenCV. I've already turned his talk into
something I can "practically" use, adding "do I see an upper body?" to my
automated picture-tweeter code. Good job.

And, thanks to Joe, we have moved from http://pm.purdue.org to
http://purdue.pl (a change I'm waiting to be blessed by the Perl

We could go forward with the same Hack-Time and Hack-Location for next
meeting, which would be September 14th at MatchBox. However, Broc is off
his feet for the next few days and Wally hasn't been coming, so we are
without an attendee with a MatchBox membership. I can usually get in just
by knocking or standing at the door, but this seems dishonest.

Plus, the hope that we'd get more non-Purdue attendees by moving off-campus
seems to have been a bust.

I suggest we move back to campus, but with an evening meeting instead of
the lunchtime. If possible, same time -- 6pm Wednesday -- but on campus
rather than downtown. I could try to get WSLR 116 again, or we could try to
get a room more centrally located.

So, please respond with your boolean vote on returning to campus and
sticking to Food&Chat Wednesdays.

Also, we need to start planning for the content of September's meeting. I
have a sense of what I can talk about and what I'm interested, but if I'm
the only one interested, turnout is low. So, everyone post a topic you're
interested in and one you feel like you can present on. It does not have to
be Perl-related or even technical, but that's toward our mandate.

My votes:
* on-campus: yes
* Wednesday before Food & Chat: yes
* I am interested in : Machine Learning
* I can present on: GeoCoding, DBIx::Class
