Dear and esteemed fellow monks.
I feel the F******k conversation has got a bit heated. But this should not stop us discussing what ways there are of raising Perl's profile. And clearly anything that is free is easier to justify.
I guess we all have a fair amount invested in this language Larry and friends came up with. I would like to keep this investment maintained. In fact I would like people to pay me more next year to use it than this year.
The F******k conversation provoked opposing reactions. It is free. Apparently.
On the other hand, people seem generally hapier with http://www.linkedin.com/ and http://twitter.com/. In which case I'd like (that's 'like' without a button attached) to propose that we pilot something with LinkedIn. If we don't like it we can always take it down.
Here is some code I found on a website, which points to an IT article on Brazil. If you paste it into an HTML editor it should show you a LinkedIn button.
Appropriately modified, it could point to any PM node.
