in reply to parrot chip

And then? Just the existance of such a chip doesn't make it useful for the average user. Javachips have been build, but do you have one in your computer(s)?

I think it would be more useful for the development of Perl 6 and parrot if a quarter of the money needed to develop and produce such a chip was donated to the Perl foundation, who could give grants to people like Larry, Dan, Allison, Damian, and whoever else is a major contributer to Perl 6/Parrot.

    Well, Larry and Damian at least. Allison, as president of YAS, is ineligible, and as grant committee chairmain I'm ineligible as well. Still, getting Larry and Damian funded, as well as other perl 5, perl 6, and parrot contributors, is definitely worth it.

    No, but I do have one in my head!
