in reply to Who is Perl? (Anthropomorphizing Everything)
I see Perl as the kid with confident knowledge, blessed with a sense of sensibility. Perl cuts through the small talk and gets right to the point - "what do you want to do today?" Perl is the underdog that gets overlooked because Perl doesn't have to prove what Perl can do. Perl just does it, and then smiles and nods while the others are still explaining how they are going to do it. Perl is the fountain of infinite creativity, always giving by letting others do the shaping anyway they want. Folks can damn doing it more than one way all they want, but i'll always revel in wonder at how someone else can express a solution in ways i would have never even dreamed of.
