in reply to This year I plan to learn about:

I know a little bit about next to everything on the list, but I plan on spending some time in the immediate future getting better acquainted with OO in Perl. Brushing up on Tk and learning to do fun things with audio, while crossing my fingers on getting it to run in a windows environment, will probably be the second half of the year. It'll probably sound like heresy around here, but I'd rather not learn about Perl 6 until I have to.

    You are far from alone, either here or elsewhere.

    I think the plan is, Perl 6 is supposed to be so nice that folks'll want to learn it. (Though, I have to admit to not having had a good look at it myself yet.)

      Maybe, but the really nice thing about Perl was that, after years of C, Java, and shell programming, there wasn't much I had to do to learn it. Whenever I run into something that looks unnecessarily complicated, I've just done a little bit of research, figured out there was some nifty feature I hadn't known about, learned how to use it, and carried on with life. I haven't looked at Perl 6 either, but from what I understand a lot of the intuitiveness is going to go away, which is just going to make me cranky.

      My psychic powers indicate to me that my favorite Perl 6 feature will be compatibility mode.
