I figured I'd better have something good for my first entry, so...
After moving back home to Akron, Ohio from Portland, Oregon I quickly realized that one of the things I missed most was Perl Mongers. PDX.pm has a pretty amazing group of perl hackers and was a great opportunity to hear the different ways people (ahem...) use Perl to get the job done faster/better.
Thanks to grep's encouragment, and the fact that my wife insists that I occasionally go out into the real world, I decided to do something about Akron's lack of it's own PM. Although I doubt my own skills on a regular basis, I am but a lowly Graphic Designer you see, I am glad that I've jumped in and started the group.
If you happen to live in the Akron area and want to get more info, the group's (temporary) address is http://www.markymoon.com/rubbercity/
