We're going to be running an SF Perlmongers table at the OSCON
Expo in July, and we're looking for volunteers to help staff the

Essentially, we need coverage by 2 or 3 people at all times to
hang around the table answering questions -- typically these
range from very simple ("When is Perl 6?") to really interesting
("Is perl any good for natural language processing?").

The Expo Hall is only open for two days of the conference:

 Wednesday, July 22:
     10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m
     6:00 p.m.  - 7:00 p.m. (expo hall reception)
  Thursday, July 23:
     10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

I figure that roughly breaks down to three shifts
  10am    to 12:30pm
  12:30pm to 3pm
  3pm on.

We only get 4 exhibitor passes, but anyone can sign up for a free
pass to the Expo Hall:


So in effect we can bring in any number of volunteers, but my
immediate problem is to get some names to submit for those 4
exhibitor passes.  Let me know ASAP If you feel like you're going
to be around a lot (want to do more than one shift?  Think you
might drop by even when not scheduled?).

Interestingly enough, we also get *one* free session pass.  I think
it would be terrible if we all ended up fighting over this, so I'm
going to take it -- but presuming we can get away with loaning it
out to different people, I'd like to make sure that any of the
booth volunteers can attend at least one of the sessions.
