The rise of PHP and ASP is no surprise - PHP and ASP are better for building dynamic database-driven Web sites. There, I said it.

Care to elaborate? I don't know much about ASP, but as far as PHP and my experiences with it, it may be more geared for web/DB programming, but I don't think the fact that Perl is generally a better programming language can be discounted.

ASP.NET, I wouldn't even know how one would compare it with Perl - it's really an object framework with lots of pre-built components, and the concept of a site being a single app, while Perl is more page-to-page down-to-Earth coding.

There's no reason Perl can't be used to create a site that functions as a single app. In many ways, Perl Monks (which runs on Everything) is exactly such a web site. I think the power of Perl shows up in being able to actually develop such architectures.

Anyway, I was just hoping that you could elaborate upon your perspectives a little bit more. Thanks.
