Gittip and companies?
On the main page of Gittip 6 out of the 12 top givers are companies supporting open source. On the main Perl community Page there is no company, and on the extended version of the Perl community Gittip page there is only a single company: Nestoria (currently at position 33-37, giving $1) out of the 42 givers.
I wonder when will companies relying on Perl, come to the conclusion that this is a good and very cheap(!) way to show their support to the Perl community, and probably make it easier for them to hire good developers.
Maybe managers in your company need to be made aware of Gittip and the Perl community there.
