Kelli had a great idea. 5 minute Perl videos for beginners. Take learning Perl and chop it up into short-attention span sized chunks with narration and video showing the code being written. This is not a new concept, I think the Rails and Selenium folks have been doing this, but I'm not aware of it being done for Perl.
Point is: short, poignant, entertaining, show don't tell.
Kelli, being a target for these videos, helpfully supplied a list of videos she wants to watch (in no particular order).
