18:15 ranguard thaljef: see how many people pay for tech content on perl.com.... e.g. none - I get adverts for pizza delivery / or random website hosting
18:15 ranguard the companies shadowcat/booking etc already put in a lot in other ways - so they're not really the right target to advertise
18:15 ranguard s/tech content/tech adverts/
18:16 ranguard not saying no, just I'm not sure there is really a big enough commercial reality here
18:16 mst our community contributions -is- our marketing department
18:20 thaljef Well, whoever owns perl.com isn't doing a very good job of selling their ad space.
18:21 thaljef BTW, I thought O'Reily owned perl.com.  When did that change?
18:21 ranguard thaljef: https://groups.google.com/forum/#​!topic/tpf-marketing/m4CTt_MARwo - first post
18:21 dipsy [ Google Groups ]
18:21 ranguard thaljef: they only ever rented it from Tom
18:22 ranguard Chromatic is up for someone doing something more with it - but that's not going to be me :)
18:22 ranguard anyway - anything non MetaCPAN should be on that forum please :)
18:28 thaljef Right, back to MetaCPAN...it is a highly visible (and useful) site.  That visibility can (and should) be leveraged for the benefit of all.  These things don't have to be just some hobby site -- they can be real enterprises.  And they can fuel their own growth and the growth of Perl.
18:32 ranguard thaljef: think you could find 5 companies that will spend 50 Euro a month on MetaCPAN with a commitment to 2 years? - and if so get us a list of what sort of advert they actually want
18:32 ranguard e.g. is the hosting type logo on the bottom right enough?
18:33 ranguard woo, dinner - laters
18:38 thaljef I don't know about that price/commitment, but yes, I can sell something.
18:38 thaljef Give me something to offer and I will find you buyers.

20:11 ranguard https://github.com/tpf/doc​s/blob/master/websites.md is the officialish list btw - instead of my semi-rant :)
20:11 dipsy [ docs/websites.md at master · tpf/docs · GitHub ]
20:21 oalders ranguard: your rant was far more interesting :)
20:27 ranguard heh, sure, but whilst not private it will go out of date - hence Dave kindly created that websites.md page :)
