in thread What can bring the excitement back to Perl?
Where I called Perl6 a red herring? I put it as number one on the list of things that can bring excitement to Perl.
You might not care about it - but the fact that MBA thinks Perl is old means two things: less Perl opportunities (jobs, contracts etc) and also less contributors to Perl open source libraries (enforcing the Perl is dead meme in a vicious circle). And that can have some impact on the lives of many of us.
