in reply to Perl exists not as an edifice, but as an act of love

Recently read his book "Here Comes Everybody", which expands on what he's talking about here. Quite interesting, altho relatively light.

I'm not sure I agree with his use of the word "love". It's not that it's necessarily inappropriate, but does (obviously) have massive connotations in lots of different ways, so it possibly ends up muddying his message a little bit.
