And while I hate to say it, the "Perl 6/Parrot is vaporware" thing is a problem.
I think petdance was on the right track when he encouraged more people to add their journals to places like Technorati to improve the amount of Perl information disseminated, and Perl Buzz is a good thing.
We release a new version of Parrot every month. Getting other people to talk about that would be nice.
Patrick and I talked a bit yesterday about how to bundle up the nascent perl6 compiler in Parrot into something installable and standalone, and I think we have a good solution there that we can implement in a couple of afternoons, when we both get some time off.
I know lots of people who are not Ovid and perrin and stvn will read this and never say anything, but what you can do to help is talk to your friends and colleagues about all of the cool stuff that we (collectively, because that includes you) are doing. If you talk about it online in your journals and weblogs or other forae, so much the better.
