The London Perl Workshop yesterday was a great success - lots of people turned up for three free tracks (and a tutorial track too). London.pm has a long history of leaders: Dave Cross,
Paul Mison, Mark Fowler, Simon Wistow and Greg McCarroll. At the last act of the day, Greg handed me the leadership of London.pm.
Many thanks to Greg for a fantastic year. I'll continue running London.pm as he has done and I have some wonderful plans for the next twelve months.
If there is anyone out there who still doubts that London.pm is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer. It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, CPAN authors and CPAN users, developers, hackers, creators, designers, Londoners and out-of-Londoners - mongers who sent a message to the world that we have never been a collection of object-oriented programmers and procedural programmers: we are, and always will be, London Perl Mongers.
