I’ll be repris­ing my pre­sen­ta­tion on Perl sub­rou­tine sig­na­tures and type val­i­da­tion for the Boston Perl Mongers on Tuesday, March 9 at 7 PM EST. Visit their wiki for details; they’ll be post­ing the Jitsi URL short­ly before the meet­ing. There’s also a Meetup page.

From Bloomberg:

In an argu­ment at the inter­sec­tion of intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty and the sep­a­ra­tion of pow­ers, the jus­tices on Monday will con­sid­er a chal­lenge to a congressionally-​created board that crit­ics have dubbed a death squad” because of its ten­den­cy to toss out patents.
