12:27 ranguard oalders: for your reddit question, I agree with Chromatic, it was the Perl 6 debacle that's caused Perl as a whole decline
12:29 ranguard and it was all about marketing and possition and stability... and we lost, can't see it ever coming back now

15:20 oalders ranguard: i don't recall asking a question or /r/perl lately
15:20 oalders *on
15:29 perigrin I think he's confusing you with tek+
15:33 jberger Somehow the mobile view of reddit shows oalders on that post

15:34 oalders ok, that's bizarre
15:34 jberger honestly, because I saw that a while back I had thought it was your question too
15:34 jberger just noticed that it wasn't now that perigrin said so
15:35 perigrin it's because sekritly oalders hates python
15:35 oalders :)
15:36 oalders I notice the post links to WWW::Mechanize and I'm the last uploader
15:36 perigrin I'm not sure I'd lay *all* of Perl5's decline at Perl6's feet.
15:36 perigrin there is enough shitty Perl5 from 1999 out there to justify our reputation
15:37 jberger well as I said, and the commenter below me clairified, I think part of it is that so many things interchange via structured data now
15:37 jberger straight text processing isn't as necessary
15:38 jberger but yeah, old bad perl hurts (how many times do people reference obfuscated perl as perl) and then there is the p6 confusion
15:38 jberger we have just been catastrophic at marketing concepts
15:38 perigrin honestly even non-obscufated perl that is moderately complex, object oriented, and from 2005 can be painful
15:39 perigrin just because back then you had to derive half an object system to get anything done
15:39 jberger true
