Fantastic groups

[ #511 ]
Dan Sugalski (internals hacker for perl6), Eric Raymond (Python user), Simon Cozens (Perl hacker), Chris Nandor (MacPerl guy) are all sitting at the same table. The debate is (surprisingly) on documentation formats.

"Metadata is crap!"

"You can have whatever format you want, but if it doesn't serve the needs of Perl programmers, Perl programmers won't use it."

"I'm hearing a `Not Invented Here' attitude!"

This is so cool. Conversations like this make attending worthwhile (IMHO).
