Larry Wall's State of the Onion address from OSCON 2005 is now online. I haven't read this one yet but all the previous ones were well worth the read, enjoy!

Update: If you have ever posted  use strict; use warnings advice here you might want to skip reading Larry's address :-)

    Slashdot 'discussion' is at
    http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/09/22/2251257&tid=145&tid=156

    and i really think there should be some kind of "perl PR departement", because everytime perl comes up on slashdot, it's just the usual 'perl is dead! use python/ruby/PHP' replies, and even though all of those languages have their merit (well - exept PHP, maybe :-), perl gets way more than its deserved share of of flaming.

      I bet TPF could find a place for anyone willing to help with Perl PR. Do you know anyone with the time and the desire?

      Isn't slashcode being written in perl it's own PR?

      ... because everytime perl comes up on slashdot, it's just the usual 'perl is dead! use python/ruby/PHP' replies ...

      Every time X comes up on Slashdot, it's just the usual "X is dead! use Y/Z/W" replies.

      No big deal.
