I run Perl Training Australia [].

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.

[ #34090 ] ATOM enabled
In an attempt to make technorati hate my blog less, I've added an ATOM feed to This was reasonably easy using XML::Atom::SimpleFeed once I realised that despite the fact that lots the fields in ATOM are optional, most readers really want them to be there.

The ATOM feed is also allegedly exporting tags, although I haven't seen any reader currently pick up on them. Either I'm using the wrong readers, or I'm doing something wrong in the export. I don't know yet.

The ironic thing is that despite this making my blog extra swishy in every other reader, technorati still seems to think it has only one post, and links that to the wrong page. I'm hoping that the posting of new content (and a ping) will help it realise things are different now.

  • It’s “Atom” not “ATOM” – just as it’s “Perl” not “PERL”. :-)

    Like “Perl”, “Atom” is not an acronym, but unlike “Perl” it’s not even even a backronym (much less meant to inspire any, as “Perl” is).

    • D'oh! That'll teach me to use technologies before doing some cursory reading about them first. ;)
