  • Of only there were a modern Perl blogging platform :-)

    • ... that everyone collectively used.

      The value in use.perl is not the blogging platform, it's that a big percentage of everyone is here.

      If we had an "official" I imagine people would mass-migrate fairly quickly.

      • I disagree. I think the value of the centralisation lies in one thing and one thing only: centralised commenting.

        Otherwise, a Planet would work equally as well.

        In fact I would nowadays personally prefer if the people who keep use.perl journals actually all had their own weblogs, resulting in more diverse content. They might individually get link flow for Perl-related but not Perl-centric content that is currently lost to the rest of the world, because the Perl centricity of the typical Perl community venues tends to drive non-Perl people away. I read a lot of webloggers who develop mainly in Ruby – for all their non-Ruby-centric content. The reverse does not happen much because the Perl community tends to publish Perl-related content in Perl-centric venues, projecting an image of an echo chamber with no connection to the other dynamic language communities, whether outside-in or inside-out.

        I would be more than willing to exchange some convenience for a stronger public image.
