in reply to Find your own monastery: "Perl 6" is not Perl, and Perl is not a Dinosaur
I told you elsewhere, and tell you again (and you already know, I just want this reply to be here on record): TPF did not do that funding. That money came from lizmat and me. We gave money to TPF and EPO and Mark Keating to enable them to do this promotion. I am that person who has been ordering stickers and buttons and tuits and more. And not just Perl 6, also Perl 5. Actually, looking at number of different items, more Perl 5 than Perl 6. and apparently even the Perl Foundation spends its money on promoting "Perl 6" at conferences.
The thing that you explicitly mention, http://blogs.perl.org/users/shadowcat_mdk/assets_c/2016/02/20160130_085351-thumb-500x281-2297.jpg , well, that is a banner with the Camelia butterfly logo that was ordered and paid for by lizmat and me. It was at FOSDEM, and lizmat and I rented a van and filled it with a lot of Perl-swag (including a lot of Perl 5 stuff, such as Perl 5 books), and we transported the banner there ourselves.As you can see, you are wrong about several things. You probably are wrong also about how bad and evil Perl 6 is.
