20:07 pdurbin huh. at http://atp.fm/episodes/42-‚Äčthe-ultimate-vanity-search John Siracusa said he believes Topsy is written in Perl. I guess this makes sense since this co-founder seems to be a Perl guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vipul_Ved_Prakash
20:15 sivoais pdurbin: I know that Chip Salzenberg works there <https://twitter.com/chipsalz>
20:17 sivoais and I'm pretty sure they use it since he has mentioned that they use AnyEvent (iirc) to handle all of Twitter in real-time
20:18 sivoais (I'm using real-time loosely here ;-P)
20:21 pdurbin sivoais: in a talk?
20:22 pdurbin "As a first step to introducing modern Perl to the Topsy code base..." -- http://chip.typepad.com/weblog/2011/08/r‚Äčetrofitting-modern-perl-part-dieux.html
20:23 sivoais pdurbin: that I don't remember. He might have mentioned it in a passing remark at a lightning talk at YAPC::NA 2013, but there aren't transcripts
20:27 pdurbin makes sense. plenty of anyeven contributions: https://github.com/chipdude?tab=repositories
20:27 pdurbin anyevent*
21:24 sivoais pdurbin: here's the talk re: Topsy and AnyEvent <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jln7yqVRiIc#t=2650>
21:40 pdurbin cool. thanks
