  • 1nickt commented on TPF launches merch store for Perl 5

    The "Raptor logo" is not the _real_ Perl logo; everybody knows that is a camel. The raptor is a Mojo creation. This is just weakening the brand.

    Also, it's sowing confusion to have PERL in capital letters given how much we have to correct people for using that rendering.

    This 25-year Perl programmer won't be buying one -- and I would love to have some good new Perl attire.

    Incorrect. All three logos in fact go back to remarks by Larry, including the velociraptor.

    The earliest reference to the velociraptor by Larry that I can find is in Apocalpyse 12, where he only mentions it as a joke. Matt Trout later attributed to him a quote that “perl5 is a velociraptor. What we need now is an acceloraptor” (i.e. Perl 6 (at the time)) – though I am unable to substantiate this…

    There is modern approach to the mailing list, namely the public-inbox software (the same that powers lore.kernel.org). With it you have both web interface and NNTP interface to the mailing list, and you can post using the other.

    That avoids filling the inbox with unrelated discussion, adds access to the history, adds searchability and being indexed.

    Still not for everybody, but in my opinion overall a better experience.

    Fun fact: public-inbox is written in Perl!
