Re: I want you to convince me to learn Perlby LanX (Canon)

I think you should also consider Ruby, but talking about Python:
I don't like Python for three reasons:
IMHO Python is a much more isolated language, Ruby (semantically) and PHP inherited a lot from Perl, transit is easy. Even JS borrows so many semantics from Perl that it almost looks like a subset.
Learning Perl means tolerating many different concepts and widening your horizon, Python OTOH produces fundamentalists.
Last but not least where is Pythonmonks, where are Pythonmongers? =)
( addicted to the Perl Programming Language)
PS: For completeness, you didn't ask me for Python pros... ;-)
