in reply to How I Learned About Quines

As a side note to your nice explanation: You are free to choose the ordering of code and data (encoding). If you start from code+data (opposed to data+code), you'll get a functional programming style quine, like this:

sub{print qq[sub{print qq[$_[0]]}->(q[$_[0]])]}->(q[sub{print qq[$_[0] +]}->(q[$_[0]])])

In a digestible form (but this way it screws up the whitespaces):

sub { print qq[ sub { print qq[ $_[0] ] }->( q[ $_[0] ] ) ] }->( q[ sub { print qq[ $_[0] ] }->( q[ $_[0] ] ) ] )

Sorry for the parentheses haters.

[Corion]: We-ird - I hadn't known this, but Ingress and Pokemon Go (both AR games in the real world where you run around) switched from using Google Maps to OpenStreetMaps, which is great. But I wonder why, as Ingress is (was?) owned by Google/Alphabet. But ...
[Corion]: ... maybe not wholly owned, or the load on Google Maps was too high?!
