You haven't told me how choosing Perl6 puts you ahead of the curve

Of course I did.

It could be the only high level language anyone would want to use five years from now.

Learning Perl 6 (and it is and will be more difficult to use well than Perl 5) in the immediate future would be similar to going back to 2000 as a Ruby expert. You might end up being able to cherry pick from every important job available. If I become a Perl 6 expert this year, I could be the primary Perl 6 trainer in the US in five years and publish "Perl 6 for Perl 5 Hackers" or "The Web Developer's Guide to Perl 6" or whatever. This is a brand new technology. Early adopters will be rolling in clover if it takes off.
