Yeah, this assumes that Perl has *lost* some excitement, or that it's *boring* to work with -- and I don't buy that.

Perl continues to be a great, great tool that I use regularly. I probably can't say that it's exciting to use, but it's definitely not boring.

And I don't really care if some MBA thinks Perl is old technology -- this old technology just works, thank you. And aren't spreadsheets old technology? ;) Perl gets the job, efficiently, cleanly, and it's not failing -- it's going to be around for quite a while.

And using Perl 6 as a red herring is getting really, really old. Can we get over it?
