in reply to Perl gets to compete after all

Anyway, problem solved and Perl now gets to compete. Yay :-)

Well, not quite. All us rabble rousers did was grant perl the ability to compete, but that still depends upon there being a local to Nurnburg team to do the actual competing. His response goes on:

Now the only question is: Will enough Perl teams actually apply for the contest?

I'd be very happy if you would follow-up the prodding for protest that some have sent over various Perl mailing lists with prodding for participation now...

Me? I'm in Chicago, so I'm right out. It sure would be keen if there's a German contingent out there that would actually float something to compete in this whatsamajigger. It'd be a shame if it turned into some sort of global perl outcry of "We're here! Pay attention to us!" and then nobody showed up for the actual competition.

    Well, we have a map of Germany on the wall of our lunch room, and a quick measurement shows that it's not too far from Frankfurt, where demerphq and Corion are located .. about 200km, in fact.

    I'm sure they'd be up for a challenge. :)

      Instead of dumping the load on demerphq and Corion, wouldn't this be the ideal time to use Perlmonks as a place for a collaborative effort, and maybe just ask them to be the local presenters? It has often been suggested that Perlmonks create a new "Projects" section where anyone can contribute ideas (and code fragments) to a project.

    Well, at least there's one less page on the web saying Perl is not good enough.

    1 down, 999 to go, but hey, it's a start :-)
