Last summer, NY Perl Mongers (NY.pm), NY Perl Seminar and NY Perl Meetup agreed to unite under the NY.pm brand, using the old NY.pm mailing list for communications and the meetup.com website for event coordination. In addition to the social gatherings of the old NY.pm, the new NY.pm has added some technical talks, much like NY Perl Seminar used to have. We recently had an event-based programming talk, and in April, John Napiorkowski is presenting on Modern Perl and Moose.
Meetup.com wants a group logo and, for a long time, the NY Perl Meetup site used the Joe-Camel-esque Gnome2 Perl bindings mascot. Now that the Meetup.com site is for all NY Perl community activities, I though we should have a fresh logo that reflects a more Perlish (and less Gnomeish) identity.
I’m not a graphic designer and I’m sure a professional would do better, but I think it will do for now until something better comes along.
