How you project yourself matters!
BSD systems may be far more stable, secure and better than Linux. But still it gets only a fraction of due what Linux gets, because PR works. Projecting Perl as a age old technology supposed to run only on Ugly looking web pages, may suffice a bunch of life long Perl loyalists but that sends a different message to new people who walk into the tent from outside. Imagine yourself as a manager who comes to these kind of forums to ask some help or search for help, what impression will one get looking at a slow ugly web page. Will you even consider using some other language if it looks the same?
Some of us may argue that we must cut the flak and focus on Perl's technical side of things. That doesn't work in the practical world. The iPhones and Pythons of the world sell because they look attractive, how they work is irrelevant in the real world. And trust me people will just use them because of the news and 'My colleagues uses that' feeling.
A modern perl monks perhaps?
