From what I've read about him, it sounds like Larry ended up putting more into Perl than what he'd initially intended.
Perl is Larry, or maybe the other way round.
Perl's the polyglot, the one with omniverous tastes who seems to want to be everywhere doing everything, working with businesses but still keeping a respectful distance from the marketing machines. Perl's the one who's cracking jokes (Bleach, anyone? Yes, I know that's one of TheDamian's.. but I think it shows Perl philosophy well), getting the job done, and making sure others get involved, quirky and willing to allow you your own quirks.
Maybe with Perl 6 the community redesign will show through and Perl will be different in personality, but I still think the Larryness will show through. It's something in the moustache, I think.
