Yes, there's a school of thought that if you want to help promote
perl you should be doing perl talks for a general programming
audience, rather than just talking to other perl programmers the way
we usually do.

For example, in the talk that's coming up this month, Quinn will be
telling us about some cool stuff he's done with perl and postgresql,
which he'll also be presenting to the postgresql gang that's in town
early next month:
