Manifesto

[ #1355 ]

I've just finished my election manifesto. Here it is (it'll be posted to london-list too). Oh, and I do hope hfb doesn't discriminate against me just because I'm differently-alive...

If I, Amelia C. Bactrianus, win the current London.pm election and
become leader of the group I promise to:

    Encourage complete and utter delegation. I myself do not have enough
    time to organise everything that the group should do. I will instead
    nominate members who seem capable, to organise

    Be the one point of contact for the group

    Encourage more stuffed, non-living members
    Represent London.pm's interests - the aforementioned delegation will
    mean that the group does entirely what it wants

    Encourage more trips to the zoo so that the group can understand the
    magical power of camels

    Encourage spreading the word of Perl throughout a) London's other
    groups b) Europe c) The World

    Encourage trips to restaurants to eat a wide range of foods (not
    including camel)

    Encourage more projects like NMS, but make sure that from the start
    the projects are open to all and have a short-term positive plan

    Encourage more drinking in pubs whose name contain the word "camel"

    Encourage attendance at technical meeting and Perl conferences

    Encourage social meets in large desserts (trifles, pancakes, etc.)

    Encourage more media hacking and publicity for the group

    Publically humilate camel violators

To summarise: A vote for Amelia is a vote for you!

  • I hear something about Buffy everywhere else...I was surprised to find your manifesto had *nothing* about Buffy, not even a mention...! Your possible constituents will be VERY angry...

    You are what you think.

    I think you mean 'life challenged'. Well, compared to some Perl programmers, a stuffed camel is sure to be an improvement! Just make sure you keep the voting procedure simple :)
