Convincing co-workers to learn Perl
I did this recently, and I made a point of inviting several IT-type groups who could (potentially) be interested. There were representatives from ... five different groups. People from the other four have come to me with scripts that they are writing with help, so that's good. No one in my group has yet, so you might need to look beyond your immediate group.
Admittedly, we are a mid-size company, with about 70 people total. I don't know that this would work with a company that is much smaller, and of course big companies have a completely different dynamic. So you might have to tailor a strategy based on the size and structure of your company.
Ain't enough 'O's in 'stoopid' to describe that guy.
