20:43 mikemol I'm hoping to be at PyOhio. More likely if I'm accepted as a speaker, but I haven't heard back yet.
20:43 * mikemol would like to start visiting language conventions and chatting up users of various languages.
20:43 mikemol For now, that's limited to driving distance and opportune scheduling...
20:44 * slavik would like to start visiting language conventions and kill up users of various non-perl languages
20:44 mikemol Hehe

20:45 mikemol Just remember that RC is supposed to be an inclusive place. I don't care if people don't want to use other languages and just use the site for advocacy. That's fine.
20:45 mikemol However, there's a lot of room for inspiration and comparison while users and developers of langauges attempt tasks and see how other languages solve them.
20:46 mikemol I know at least two languages which have had changes driven by attempts at implementation. I doubt I'm likely to directly hear about cases where one language's feature was inspired by anothers, via observation at RC.
20:47 sorear all good languages are affected by implementation possibilities
20:47 sorear the closest thing to a successful waterful language I know of is COBOL
20:47 sorear waterfall

23:50 mwn3d_phone mikemol: one of these days maybe RC will get funded and it can be your full time job. Then you can travel to language group conferences whenever wherever.
