in reply to How to spread Perl's awesomeness beyond Perl Specific Sites/Internet?
- Stop referring to it a "awesomeness".
Try any of: advantage, applicability, convenience, efficacy, efficiency, expediency, practicality, productiveness, usefulness, utility.
- Don't pontificate; demonstrate.
Take a look over one of your colleagues shoulders and ask them to explain what they are working on -- preferably when they've just started a new task.
Then, go away and quietly write a perl solution; then bring it here and get the monks to clean it up for you.
Then take it and show your colleague -- preferably before he has finished his version -- and offer it to him, without making a big deal about it.
If someone did that for me a couple of times -- without lording their prowess -- it'd make me start paying attention.
With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
