led the group until September 2001. Between August 2002 and June 2006 he was 
the Perl Mongers User Groups Co-ordinator for the Perl Foundation. 

Dave is a regular speaker at Perl and Open Source conferences and is often 
invited to present tutorials alongside the main conference. He is the author 
of "Data Munging with Perl" (Manning, 2001) and a co-author of "Perl Template 
Toolkit" (O'Reilly, 2003). Dave lives in SW London. The rumours about gold-
