Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

The Future (aka Children of Men)

[ #31388 ]

At the moment whenever I read the news I am angry at the newspapers and the government for scaremongering, wasting my tax dollars^Wpounds on stupid ideas and not generally not being reasonable.

If it all continues like this we are doomed. To see how doomed, I highly recommend you go see Children of Men at the cinema. It's not a happy film, it's a dystopian future where everything is like now, only much much worse. Now, how do we stage a coup?

  • Oddly enough, I just finished reading that book over the weekend. Very good, but very depressing. I wonder how faithful the movie is? I can see how the book could be perverted to be something "Hollywoodish".

    • Seeing the film has made me want to read the book.

      From what I've heard, the film is a greatly simplified version of the book - but then, isn't that always the case?

    This book [] will help. I read it recently - it's fascinating.
