    Actually, down to 3 now!...
  • Posted Rakudo and NQP Internals Workshop (14/15 Sep) to Liz

    Perl6 is at a turning point. Now running on 2 virtual machines (Parrot and JVM), with 2 more coming available in the next months (Javascript and MoarVM), with abstract concurrency on the JVM now and full Perl 5 interop at the horizon in MoarVM.

    To make it easier for past, current and futu…

  • Commented on YAPC::Europe 2013 in Kiev, week minus 19
    Some people in the Ukraine may not like "Back in the USSR" as the background music. Then again, it *is* April 1st :-)...
  • Commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks
    I left PerlMonks a long time ago already but for a technical reason: it is just too damn slow. I was impressed by Schwern's YAPC keynote. The comic strip is just bad and in bad taste. As far as I'm...
  • Posted Perl Reunification Summit to Liz

    As some of you may know, my partner Wendy van Dijk and me organized a Perl Reunification Summit on the Friday and Saturday before the YAPC::Europe. Organizing this started in May already, when I tried to contact as many people face to face to discuss this, before finalizing the plan. When the…

  • Posted First Post to Liz

    So, why don't you write a blog? A question I have been asked many a time in the past years.

    I guess I mainly felt that I didn't have to tell the world much. And I was busy with $work.

    Then you stop $work and start with $sabbatical. And start acting on the strange ideas that you …

    Please make sure that he gets a visa. Otherwise, I understand, he will not be let into the Ukraine (as Australia is one of the few countries of which its citizens need a visa to travel to the Ukraine)....
  • Commented on post-yapc
    Steven: Perl 5 momentum is much on everybody’s mind. The last thing I want is to do, is to take people away from Perl 5 development. What I do want to achieve, is a long term environment in which Perl...

    Joe, I agree with other commenters that this is not worth leaving perlmonks about. I don't know about the downvoting (I don't pay attention to that), but apart from the OP trying to defend his original post, there were a few flipant replies that you were being too sensitive, but there were also several replies to the OP taking your point of view.

    I applaud your very calm reply to the OP and your linking Schwern's keynote. That was the right way to handle it. There will always be some conflicts/lack of sensitivity/etc in a forum like perlmonks -- if this is as bad as it gets, we're…

  • A. Sinan Unur commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    First, let me please emphasize the following: I don't think that cartoon should have been posted, I think it was right to point out it was inappropriate, and I fully support any effort towards making on-line and face-to-face interactions among professionals not to resemble boys' locker room antics.

    I think you need to understand why the title of my blog post says "Don't Box Me In."

    This comment is an attempt to explain to Joe McMahon the point of my blog post, because I sense some hostilit…

  • Sawyer X commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    I can speak volumes about this topic (and perhaps next time we'll be at the same conference, we should), but meanwhile I'll simply say: you were right about what Schwern did (most of it, at least) but he was right about it. The fact that you have an open mind (happy to hear you do!) doesn't mean you don't alienate others or necessarily notice it. My mother tongue isn't English either. Does that mean I don't alienate others, such as women? Hmm... no, it doesn't. I'm sorry this hurt your feelings, but that's simply how the world works sometimes. We don't always notice damage we do, and…

  • A. Sinan Unur commented on Why I'm considering dropping Perlmonks

    @SawyerX I'd like to get a few glasses of your favorite beverage just to thank for Dancer which I seriously love. We can also talk about this topic. But, now that I explained myself one more time, I am going to refrain from further commentary.

    As for Linus' comment ... He is a rather public person. I do not specifically follow him, but Google+ keeps putting his stuff in my stream via "What's Hot on Google?", so that's a public forum.

    He referred to a particular group's religious beliefs as "bats**t crazy" which would definitely create an unwelcoming environment for members of…

    I hope we could meet at the next YAPC and I could buy you a drink as well for your contributions to Perl (and to YAPCs!) next time. :)
