in reply to How to spread Perl's awesomeness beyond Perl Specific Sites/Internet?

I’ve devoted my entire professional life .. and happily counting .. to this very-strange business of ours, and I have never once been particularly concerned with how any particular programming-language did or did not “promote itself.”   Rather, they are all merely “tools for a job,” and if you are not yet aware of the value of this-or-that particular tool, “boo hoo for you.”

No, I quite-seriously mean that.   As Dr. Feynman once famously said, “What do you care what other people think?”   Perl, like every other programming tool, (a) needs no introduction at all to those who know of it; and (b) benefits not-at-all by an introduction to those who don’t.   C’est la guerre.   Most of us, if not all of us, use all of these tools quite-interchangeably almost every day.   (Yawn.)
