in reply to Who is Perl? (Anthropomorphizing Everything)

This reminds me of an article in the very first issue of The Perl Journal, where Larry was comparing programming languages to music styles. A must read. On line at:

    Thank you! I'd read that way back when (side note: notice how "way back when" could be last month or 10 years ago, depending on who says it?), and the mindset displayed in the article was what sold me on trying out Perl in the first place. I hadn't thought about that article for a long time. Actually, I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it.

    Sweeper++ for reminding me.

[holli]: Corion is well off. I am sure there is a script of his running in the frankfurt banking data center, diligently mining bitcoins ;-)
[Corion]: holli: Hahaha :-D
[choroba]: When working at a bank, we had a colleague who entered mining early enough to have lots of bitcoins. He used to say "I go to work just because I'm too bored at home."
[Corion]: choroba: Aah, no, I do it because of the money :)
[choroba]: And when asked "How are you?" in the morning, his reply was usually "I don't know, haven't checked the bitcoin rates yet."
