  I'd be happy to gather these up for everyone and bring them all to the
  BOF.  If you find examples of where other tech is being discussed,
  but not mod_perl feel free to E-mail it to me directly and I'll
  correlate it all.  

  You can obviously omit websites/magazines entirely devoted to a
  particular technology. I don't think we'll have much luck
  getting much perl/mod_perl PR on or in a Java magazine. ;)

  I agree that we should work to make sure mod_perl is accurately 
  portrayed and do our best to avoid misinterpretations that mod_perl
  is a separate language, etc.
