in thread regarding intolerance to perl which I observe

I rather read his article as "if you choose tools/programming languages that are the industry standard, you get industry-standard employees and industry-standard (=average) code; if you choose tools/languages that are the exception, you might get exceptional code."

Basically, one type of employer is playing it safe and the other is taking a gamble.

    His language was clearly pushing for the opposite: not a gamble or an experiment but evidence suggesting the competition might have their hackt together. No one is afraid of experiments in the private sector (unless they are backed by a good lobbyist and the funds to make everyone a loser). They are costly and terrible, terrible odds.
