in thread Hockey Sticks

Just to be sure, you recognize that TheDamian was speaking somewhat tongue-in-cheek, right? He didn't really mean that P6 should have been developed as a closed, private project!

Well he wasn't speaking tongue-in-cheek, you can hear it in his voice :)

But he wasn't speaking tongue-in-cheek, I wanted to point out to fellow AM that TheDamian acknowledges a failure of marketing -- the thing he's complaining about -- maybe it would make fellow AM feel better

TheDamian goes on to say rakudo is an alpha release , this interview was in 2011

Its 2012 now, I don't know what is different, but I can still see small issues of marketing, not as extreme as fellow AM feels

    TheDamian acknowledges a failure of marketing

    Damian said "failure of marketing" to refer to the fact that on the one hand "people have given up on Perl 6 ever appearing" but on the other there's the reality that "it has appeared" and "3 years ago we started releasing alphas" and "we're very close to something that you could call Perl 6.0.0 if you wanted to" and "it's an awesome language".

    Of course, some folk will argue that it hasn't been released, or that we shouldn't do marketing until it hits production status, or that it's not really an improvement on Perl 5, or Ruby, and on and on...
