  • or Quantum in Cambridge frequently do geek book author events though I dunno if you'll attract a huge crowd of adoring fans who ask why your name is in all lower case letters. You'll probably just get Uri. :D
    • I already know I'm not going to get crowds in Michael Jackson proportions, which is why I figure we should doubloe up on the authors.

      I'm not even sure Uri would care enough to show up for a Learning Perl thing ;)
      • (1) I don't think we got even a dozen dozen folk for each of Michael A. Jackson's [wikipedia.org] Structured Programming and Development Boston seminars [gbcacm.org] in the 1980's, but I'd have to dig deep to get those numbers. I'm sure he drew better in NYC or London in the day.

        (2) MAJ is out-drawn by the other Michael Jackson [beerhunter.com] on their home island, but we have our own prophets of beer [beeradvocate.com] and whisky (MAP) [lafn.org] here in Boston.

        (3) If you mean the has-been M.Jackson, the standard of Jacksonian crowds has diminished of late [bbc.co.uk].

        ======== SERIOUSLY ===========

        Depending when you'll be in Boston next, I could even try to get you Jackson(1)'s Saturday forum, GBC-ACM PDS ... we offered it to Randal, but we couldn't make a mutual date. They haven't posted the Fall 2005 schedule, so they may still have a date open -- eMail me direct at $DayJob if interested.

        If you have specific dates for Boston, and would like to get back-to-back weeks, I can try to astro-turf a demand for a class at $DayJob. (Ditto)

        I won't speak for Uri, but Boston.PM ought to be able to get get some of our co-workers to turn out.
