    Ricky Morse, Digital pack-ratting for Tumblr (and XKCD): a legally hypothetical discussion of how to time-shift Tumblr data
    I’m a bit of a digital packrat, so I will be showing a tool that I developed to help me hoard Tumblr meme posts. As a bonus, just for this talk I wrote something in Perl 6 that does a similar task for XKCD.
    Ricky Morse has been using Perl for various things since the late 90s.
    Since it's Pi Day, i'll arrange special cookies and/or pie to celebrate math geekiness. If anyone wants to bake a pie speak up !
