  • I'll link to Modern Perl!
    • I appreciate that, thank you.

      I had in mind something more than a collection of links. I meant more of a hyperlinked conversation, where I might write something and other people will write longer responses and link back. I don't see that much in the Perl world, and I wonder why.

        I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't have any desire for that kind of distributed conversation. Probably one reason I hated the concept of "blogs" when it first became a buzzword. I'd much rather discuss it all here, in one place.

        Odd, since I'm a decentralist.

        Anyway, I can't imagine writing something and linking back ... I want the original author to see. And hopefully respond. And I want other people in the author's audience to see, and respond. I would only write elsewhere and link back if I felt I could gain more audience by doing so, and then I'd be likely to double post.
