Today’s Reading + Perl Community

Cliff’s memories of Easter are a great read.

A study showing that a significant number of people exhibit violence towards their computer when it malfunctions, and another significant number of people attempt to sweet-talk it.

Shapr posted a link to the extremeperl mailing list. I found this post on the value of learning languages to be insightful.

Along a similar line, there’s an intriguing post on The Sequence from a Perl hacker looking at the Haskell community. I think he’s right.

These Perl people are really impressing me lately. My respect for the Perl commnuity has really shot upwards lately. And I am similarly disappointed in many of the directions Python is taking these days. Nice time to be using Haskell :-)
