    Ruby-maniacs and SnakeLovers will discover the one true way; even a few PHP adicts may find rehabilitation.

    The Developer:Telepathy suite of modules will be released to CPAN ...
      And afterwards- even more complicated: Algorithm::UnderstandWomen ;-)

      Happy new Year! Rata

      I remember working on that project. We had the complete high-level API done, but they never finished the device driver. Then the neural network went down, and all the telepaths crashed. It wasn't pretty.

    Hmm. I'm making a Perl program for text processing. I eventually hope to make it have a semi-realistic conversation. So, of course, I voted for the Turing Test.

    I predict that, in my new job, I will discover a certain resistance to Perl, until I show how easy it can be to do certain things.

    And even then, ONE person ...

    tbone1, YAPS (Yet Another Perl Schlub)
    And remember, if he succeeds, so what.

    That Perl will continue to be a life-saver and help me to crunch enough data to fill my thesis and finally finish my PhD! I may even thank Larry Wall (and P-Monks!) in my acknowledgements, if only to irritate the bioinformatics department who are all caffeine addicts or in Slytherin house...

    Just a something something...

    That perlmonks will start the year with a poll that has the least creative response options to date.
    Something else
    Something wonderful
    ...

    Here's my version of the poll - cast your votes now

    My top prediction for 2010:

    A) The world will discover David Cook is a ginger
    B) Japan will stop eating dolphins
    C) Google will declare bankruptcy
    D) The Burj Khalifa will topple
    E) Michael Jackson's will replace Jesus in the Guiness Records for most appearances in toasted bread after death
    F) Fortune 500 execs will develop morals

    Same sh!t, different bag ... ah well, 'twas ever thus ;-/

    Ah, sorry - misread it. I though the poll said "Perl 6 will climb the stairs".

    I thought that was maybe Rakudo Stannah

    The Turing test will be passed!! I'm getting back into Perl and that is the goal which I've established some 3 years ago. Already made progress and I am hoping one day humans will create something like Cortana (as a rough example)!

    Have any human beings actually passed the Turing Test?

    Shouldn't it be, "another Earth-like planet will be discovered?" We discovered this one quite some time ago.

    My toppest prediction is that I'll learn how to program... and if I work at it, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    It would be nice to see a usable Perl 6 version. CERN LHC still may not be a large enough machine to find a Higgs. There may be some new moves in the area of renewable energy that may be the true beginning of the end for fossil fuels.
