  • I was chatting with Rael Dornfest and asked him if he liked Perl. He said yes, but he was tired of the Perl mindset of "everybody having their pet solution." In Python, there are "SIGs" (Special Interest Groups) that are dedicated to taking a particular technology and making it work properly. As a result, you have a much greater consistency in code and you don't have to hunt around for the 30 ways to do the one thing. I have to admit, that sounds awfully nice even if I am one of the "pet solution" progr

    • Sounds like a good idea. Sort of has equivalents now - DataTime project, DBI, at least 2 email projects (oops!)

      It would be good if search.cpan.org then linked to the relevant SIG for a module (which would presumably supply a resource page giving overview of the topic, comparisons of different modules, and other recommendations).
