  • ...that a language like Perl can't even maintain one dedicated journal. I trust the best has been tried to maintain TPJ in this time of economic crisis, but it's disheartening nevertheless.

    I'd rather read it online. And hope it doesn't go the way of PerlMonth. I strongly hope that isn't the only site which concentrates on Perl articles or the language will be maneuvered into more of a niche than it already is in.

    Maybe the valiant efforts to improve Perl should go beyond the language.

    We are Perl. Your table will be assimilated. Surrender your beer. Resistance is futile.
    • TPJ's current slimming down isn't the result of the current ecomony, waning Perl's popularity or the government chip inserted into my behind. Many, many people are still using and loving Perl. Scripting languages have a tough row to hoe in the magazine publishing biz. The Python Journal? VBScript Weekly? Tcl Testimonals? I don't think so. Perl is a stealth technology. It quietly gets the job done and no one makes a fuss about it.

      In lieu of a better idea, I think sending polite postal letters to:

      CMP Media
      Attn: Amber Ankerholz
      600 Harrison St.
      San Francisco, CA 94107

      would do a lot of good. Express your desire to see TPJ exist as a separate publication. Letters are better than email.
