There are only 9 months per year to get structured content for, if we work on the assumption that we can get Damian Conway lured up some time in the summer, and we have Lightning Talks on September, and a social in December.

I'm quite happy to do a talk per year, they are likely not to be directly related to Perl as I am currently not using Perl for anything. They might be software or practise based.

One thing Abram Hindle mentioned was to have a couple of canned presentations (maybe on a couple of perl modules) ready to fill in for cancellations.

I for one appreciate the time and effort Alan puts in to getting us a place month after month, year after year.
