I have virtually (and somewhat physically) disappeared for a few good months, whether it was from the development community or from friends. I've needed a break from stuff, from planet Earth.
One of the things I had the privilege of doing upon returning to the surface is to organize our next Tel Aviv Perl Mongers (TA.pm) meeting. I was fortunate enough to have the help of Shlomi Fish and Gabor Szabo. I also had the pleasure of having Erez Schatz and Ido Kanner stepping up and offering to do a few talks!
