I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.

I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.

RateMySL - Rate My Second Life

[ #32789 ]

RateMySL - Rate My Second Life
Now I'm finally up-to-date with my backblogging, I can write about what I'm doing right now. My recent pet project has been RateMySL aka Rate My Second Life, a distributed image voting system for Second Life, a virtual world that's recently been gaining a lot of publicity.

RateMySL uses a number of in-world voting panels to collect and relay information back to my real-world server, which in turn tallies the information and pushes scores back to scoreboards which are also located in Second Life. The project is directly responsible for the Voting::Condorcet::RankedPairs CPAN module, which it uses under-the-hood to generate scoring information.

When we released the system a few weeks ago we aimed to have more than 25 participants in the first month, which we're really considering our beta period. While we've been successful in that regard, I believe that the mechanism currently used for vote collection is inheretly flawed, with determined individuals being able to unduly influence the ratings. I hope to have it replaced in time for next month's contest.
