> Let's fill Mashed with Perl hackers.

Over the last few days I've been watching the profiles off attendees  
being set up on the Mashed web site[1]. And either you're all using  
pseudonyms or there are very few Perl mongers attending.

I think I've linked my profile to everyone who I know. If you're going  
and I've missed you, then please feel free to link to me[2].

I'm interested to hear why that is. We had a pretty good turnout last  
year. Was the strain of mingling with all those Ruby and PHP  
programmers too much?

If we don't get a strong Perl presence at events like this, then it  
just reinforces the (incorrect) idea that Perl is dead (or Undead[3]).
