Interesting Announcement at Tonight's MySQL Meetup

I think the most interesting announcement made at the Boston MySQL Meetup tonight was by a man who I'd seen before but couldn't place. I didn't think it had been at a previous MySQL meetup. He sat down when things were getting going and said something like:

I have some exciting news . . . [long pause] . . . the next release of Perl 6 will be in 3 days!!

While it was interesting to me and a few of the other Perl folks in the room, the reality was that this exciting news was met by mostly blank faces. After a few moments someone suggested that perhaps the next room over, where the Perl user's group was meeting tonight, was probably the place he was looking for. Sorry to turn such an exciting announcement into such a deflating experience. I realized then that I knew the face from my sporadic visits to the Boston.pm user group.

It is a good reminder to check in on what's happening with Perl 6. It's been awhile since I've given it a good look.

I took video tonight of Sheeri talking about storing/retrieving bits in MySQL. Hopefully will have it up in the next few days.
