POW! -- I love embedded Linux on cute little boxes - plus I get to
develop apps for them if I find one cute enough (and cheap enough to put
on every bus and bus stop in Dundee :)

I'd like to contribute to a Perl talk. I'm a failed Perl evangelist (too
enthusiastic - people steer away from me because I'm like a religious
maniac in the street) so I'm not too helpful in spreading the Perl good
news. I'm still shy of Perl 6 (I have too much running on Perl 5.6 to
even move up to 5.8) but I found one of Simon's talks on Perl 6
internals to be quite amazing (Dr Dobbs Little Languages Workshop).
