PerlMonks  

A tree grows in codeland

On the occasion of the start of my second year participating in Perlmonks, a meditation on what (and who) makes a site like Perlmonks work.

Thanks to tye for ascii-art and to the assembled and disassembled monks for a fun and informative year.

When partners feed the community,
software supports the transformation of the audience,
content is at the root of the software,
and purpose is at the root of the content,
a tree grows in codeland.

    Thanks so much for this great diagram and explanation, jZed.
    I always wonder how does this wonderful community website
    is developed and maintained.
    And now I have a better picture.

    Regards,
    Edward
