Are you a CPAN Author?
Do you know Wikipedia is now the first source information of the Internet?
Maybe you will like to advertise your modules into Wikipedia like these examples (look at end of every page):
So... We can to flood Wikipedia with CPAN/Perl links.
It's mindblowing or terrible idea?
We need to show/advertise more of our powerful computer language.
If you like this idea, I recommend to search into Wikipedia for pages something to do with your module, and to insert your links like the Metaphone page, with a link to your CPAN module, and links to Perl and CPAN Wikipedia pages.
But... this follow another idea... Wikipedia have a Category page for Perl modules, but only have a handful. Where is the 10.000 modules? :-) Of course, I want not to duplicate CPAN into Wikipedia (Wikipedia is not a reference manual), but we can to insert a short text, like the pod Description section of the CPAN module (like the DBI and CGI Wikipedia pages).
Do you know how many CPAN pages links to Wikipedia? (like Crypt::Dining)
Update: I started with the Spanish Wikipedia... I inserted the link to Log::Log4perl module. Wow... is a very long work... maybe... we need a Perl module for this work :)
