    Thanks, this was interesting to look at.

    I liked this, thanks so much for your efforts in putting it together!

    394 replies over the course of two weeks is pretty good. It would be great to see how this data changes in a year, and for other tech-oriented countries/cities. Japan is sort of a nice little isolated demographic, so I can definitely see the appeal in starting there. Were there other motivating factors for looking at Japans' perl usage?

    If my URL::Encode::XS makes a difference you should try Unicode::UTF8 (also my module), it makes a huge difference in my deployments.

    Above, you describe syntax for pointing a cpanfile to git. The end of the line is cut off, unfortunately:
    requires "MyExperimental::Module" => "git://

    Do you know if this still works for cpanm and/or Carton, and what the proper syntax is for it? cpanm keeps trying to read the url as a version number, no matter how I enter it.
