TheDamian acknowledges a failure of marketing

Damian said "failure of marketing" to refer to the fact that on the one hand "people have given up on Perl 6 ever appearing" but on the other there's the reality that "it has appeared" and "3 years ago we started releasing alphas" and "we're very close to something that you could call Perl 6.0.0 if you wanted to" and "it's an awesome language".

Of course, some folk will argue that it hasn't been released, or that we shouldn't do marketing until it hits production status, or that it's not really an improvement on Perl 5, or Ruby, and on and on...

[Corion]: Yay. Traditional finance situation averted. Bonds can be quoted in amounts (1_000_000 EUR) or per unit (1 unit). And a traditional error is to trade 2_000_000 piece when you meant to trade 2_000_000 EUR.
[Corion]: (one of my scripts simply catches high amounts and I phone people making that trade, ideally before the payment is due)
[Corion]: The sad thing is that my script sits at the end of the pipeline and can only look at the payments due today or tomorrow basically, while there are many more systems further up in the pipeline
[GotToBTru]: better late than never, I guess
[Corion]: GotToBTru: Sure - there is a long and sad story of many frantic cleanups that led us to implement this notification ;)
