One of the big contributions of an online community to the learner and practitioner of a language or a computing technology is have your problem or trial solution looked at by a variety of inteligences.
By this I mean by people whose profile of computing strengths complement yours. Some are exceptional exceptional strong at keeping a encyclopedic array of detail at instant recall. Others excel in seeing a path through the thicket to the solution that is eluding you. Some have a crucial insight through experience in the problem domain. Often someone helps you read the documentation you have been reading with a slightly different slant or directs you to different lore (or CPAN modules). These same facets often emerge in successful project teams.
Programming can be a much more social activity some of us admit. Regarding perl, I am glad a took my vows in this order. Thanks, Perlmonks.
