I just took a quick look and I do not see what the problem is. Is there some political agenda being pushed by him, or some feathers he rustled, or....? Update: Duh! I see petdance is Andy! So a fellow Monk is putting a good list of new articles of interest together and we have a problem with including a link to that site?? Problem seems to be NOT including it.
How many personal blogs should count as Perl "news"? That's what PerlBuzz is, and Mr. Lester isn't even a significant Perl contributor (unless you count adding the "const" keyword). I would say "none," because there are too many to include them all.
So the blog - the news - is the significant contribution to Perl.
There's Perl, the language... perl & CPAN, the implementation... and there is also the Perl Community and Perl Monks is far from being all of it.
Also, there apparently are some people who seem to be good at everything and it looks as if they do well everywhere and have got time for all kinds of things. But more often then not, people will do one thing very well, or just a few things, and devote their time for that purpose. That is of real value, too.
