Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'd like to keep more up to date about useful modules on the CPAN. How do you do this?

Some thoughts:

∗ One way I've found is to look at what modules get pulled in by CPANPLUS when I install something that I already know about and need.

∗ Anyone know of a "Perl module a day" website? If not a dedicated site, then maybe someone doing the iron man blogging challenge? Would be a great way to come up things to blog about...

∗ It might be useful if cpanratings kept a list of the "42 most-recently rated modules". I'm not sure what their position is on providing a "higest-rated" modules list.
