I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
Spoken Wikipedia Larry Wall
Last night I discovered an old microphone, and today during my lunchbreak I thought I'd try my hand at Spoken Wikipedia.
My ideal "first article" needed to be short, easy to read, and on a subject that I was interested in. I considered Perl, but it's rather long, and reading programming examples can be challenging. So I settled on Larry Wall instead (audio).
Apparently my Australian accent is rather pronounced, most notably the Australian tendency to drop vowels, syllables, and sometimes entire words when it suits them. Still, it was a fun thing to do over a lunchtime, and I've now got some experience in sound editing.
