In a recent reddit thread on Perl as living or dead:
...the Lispers, Smalltalkers and Haskellers have been trying to convince everyone that language is everything: but the fact of the matter is, community is everything and the Perl community is the biggest and most badass one there is.

    True ... very true. It reminded me of when I read a book on compilers a few ages ago. Afterwards, I created my own language and wrote the compiler for it. It was the PERFECT LANGUAGE

    Unfortunately, I couldn't convince others to try it, and I wasn't forward-thinking enough to make good bindings to the libraries of other languages. So poor old Genial died not long after being born...... </rose-colored-glasses-mode>
