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.
Talk like a Pirate Day
This Saturday was International Talk Like a Pirate Day, as well as Software Freedom Day. This year I sided with the pirates, donned a particularly swashbuckling outfit, and joined about 150 other pirates to march through Melbourne, fight off ninjas, and singing the only sea-shanty known by every member of our scurvy crew.
