There are a lot of tourists in Paris these days... But it's harsh to leave the office that *late* and not even find a quiet wagon. Tourists here were brasilians but at the next station, a bunch of additionnal japanese came in :)
jobs.perl.org has an interesting statistics page where you can see that the number of job offers is constantly growing (from 30 to 150 per months). It's good news. Is it because this service (jobs.perl.org) is getting more popular or because there are more Perl jobs available ?
