This post is the closing bracket to that post.
For one month, I posted every seventh or eighth entry on use.perl, on average. It was a lot of work, but it was fun. It helped November forward quite a bit, too. (No, I won't write "November the wiki" when there's no risk of confusion. ☺) After doing that, I took a few days' vacation. Now I'm back to blogging, but at a less hectic pace; maybe semi-weekly or so.
I have a Perl 6 trick that I want to write about, but that'll have to wait until tomorrow. Today I'll just write this month summary: what historical event I wrote about on each day, what I did that day, and what I did overall compared to what I said I'd do in the beginning.
Every day, I surfed to Wikipedia to find some historical event that happened on that day, and which captured my interest. Here are the themes that apparently interest me:
(I can't help noticing how Western this list of events is. This is the first time that a Wikipedia bias has really struck me — I think I'm going to partly counteract this by finding a few tens of notable non-Western events and adding them to the "events on this date" lists on Wikipedia.)
Here's what I did on the same days, in terms of November, Rakudo or Perl 6 improvements.
Finally, here are the things I promised I'd do, annotated with comments on what I've done:
.fmt— plan to do a lot more.
Looking over those results, I'm both a bit proud over the things I did do, and eager to improve on the things I didn't. I guess that's the way it should be.
