Sorry for the lack of update; I was whisked away by Best Practical folks into hacking a PubSub / Asynchronous Event system for Jifty, initially prototyped in Perl 6, then ported to Perl 5. It now works really well -- a multiplayer Chat server in less than 50 lines of code, including web templates. More about that later...
I just gave two talks at Amazon.com; they seem to be quite well received. The Pugs one is the same as I gave in OOPSLA/DLS, and here are the slides in the usual formats:
Thanks again to William Cook for inviting me to DLS and to Trey Harris for inviting me to Amazon. It was a lot of fun! :-)
Thanks for presenting @ Amazon.com; I learned a lot about both JFDI (as I would lik to call it!) and Perl6/Pugs. I anticipate the ideas and deliverables of these talks will quickly work their way into our ecosystem. I'm sure many (if they haven't already!) will reciprocate with commits. Thanks!

Hi guys, i saw the presentations slides and they look great!.
I would like to know the tool used to make the code syntax highlighting. Im planning to make a presentation about Perl at work so it would be great if i could include syntax hightlighting into the presentation.
Thanx in advance, XD
pd: sorry about my english, but im learning ;)

Alfredo: I use the Text::VimColor module to generate HTML, then copy/pasted it from Safari to Keynote:

Very excting pugs presentation! As soon as I get some free cycles I'll start playing with it and hopefully have some patches for you. (In the mean time, I'm going to start submiting smoke reports on OpenBSD, since I don't see anyone else doing that.)
As for Jifty... it's looking cool, but I'm still in love with Catalyst :)

Folks: Much thanks for your nice words; I have nothing else to repay your generous comments, so I sent you some commit bits instead.
Looking forward to see you in the AUTHORS file and on #perl6! :-)
