in reply to Fix the Perl News header

Thanks for raising this point. I've updated the links to be more relevant. I think that such links are useful to newcomers or those who have been away for a long time, so are worth keeping.

    Thanks for taking the time to update it. It might be worth adding a link to a stable perl5-porters archive (not Google Groups -- God knows what will happen to that), but your list is good: short and up-to-date.

      I updated it a little more. I took out the language that says "post news on one of those sites"; instead, it says post here. :-)

      Also - I hope you don't mind, Arunbear, but I took out the Enlightened Perl Ironman link. That's not really news; it's even less so than a blog, which is what most of the other sites are.

        Ironman might not strictly be news, but e.g. it's where I go to get my daily dose of "what's happening in the Perl world". It's also much more fresh than the O’Reilly blogs section (which is more archive than news).

    I don't understand why you'd remove Perlbuzz. While Perlbuzz is indeed "pretty much Andy Lester's playground", that doesn't mean it's not a good source of Perl news.

      It's not. It's mostly a hand-created (and therefore highly biased) weekly blog aggregator, with a bit of editorial fluff.
        That's right. It's curated.

        If all that a feed does is aggregate, without distinction, everything posted from a given blog source, then it's not news. It's an unintelligent dump.

        Besides, there's no such thing as "unbiased." Everything involves human decisions at some level.

        xoxo,

        By this logic the Perl News section on Perl Monks is itself invalid.

      I removed Perlbuzz simply because we've got a link to Perlsphere, which includes all updates from Perlbuzz plus much more.

        How roundly tart of you :)

        Cause bees buzz and make sweet honey :D

        That's good enough for me! Thanks, Arunbear.

        That sounds sensible to me.

        I wonder if it would make sense to also add Twitter feeds that are news sources. Of course I suggest @perlbuzz as the first obvious one, but I wonder if there are others. Then again, that I can't think of any offhand says maybe there aren't others, so never mind. :-)

        xoxo,
        Andy
