in thread New mascot for Perl

I vote for a new symbolic logo for perl to be the familiar image from the (IINM) Sistine Chapel ceiling, that of God's hand extended (I always assumed that was God, I think there's a typical grand old man with robust curly beard and regal attire attached to the hand) to touch Man's (Adam's?).
Ah, you mean the image from the cover of Nigel Chapman's book, Perl: The Programmers Companion? I'd second that, as it's one of the better Perl learning books - unfortunally, it's a bit outdated, being from 1997. But it wouldn't surprise me if the association of the image with Perl was already trademarked....

    Ah yes, Chapman's book's cover -- I didn't know about it until a few months ago, long after posting this proposal. Honestly :-). It does seem like the idea is now more problematical than before a book was published with this subject as its cover. Oh well :-)
