  • Given that he has no wikipedia entry, who is he, and why should I be excited that he has a blog?

      I don’t have a Wikipedia entry either. Why are you reading my journal?

      • You post to use.perl. I read everyone at use.perl.

        An announcement is more effective if you give a bit of context. Otherwise, you're just preaching to the choir. Don't presume everyone who reads your announcement knows everything you do... otherwise, why would you be making the announcement?

        It's like the slashdot posts that say "New version of Hipster now available! This is exciting!" And I go, "what the hell is Hipster?". Bad announce. Sigh.

        • Conceded. Your response wasn’t the best way to communicate that, though; it would have come across as much more neutral without the Wikipedia clause.

          • Wikipedia is surprisingly complete as of late. Almost everything that I've gone to wikipedia for, I've seen something interesting, and yes, it's been surprising, but it's also started setting the bar for "worth knowing".

          I did that about AJAX for about three months. I hate it when a new term springs up and people use it like anyone who doesn't know it is just not in the "in-crowd." It's so high-school.
