That's a good list - I am now looking at Ian (who self-volunteered for

That's cool. What age-ranges do you support. perhaps there is a chance 
we could organise an earlier time at a convenient location and grab a 
few Perl people to present. As Mongers we would be looking at finding 
Students who would like to consider using Perl as then we could perhaps 
point them at proposals for GSoC etc.

It helps a lot Tim, hope we'll see you at the meetings if you can make 
it, if you need a private email address for me I can supply
