  • I think Simon misses the point too, but not exactly in the way hfb says. I think the point should be that giving to TPF is not charity, but an investment. I think Simon is absolutely right that if TPF is a charity, it will not see a dime of my money. But if it is an investment -- not necessarily one in which I will reap financial benefit, but certainly on in which I will derive direct benefit -- then that's a different case altogether.

    • Darn, I find myself agreing with Pudge!
      I have benefited so much from Perl, from the paycheck I get every month to working with a language I love, to meeting people I can relate to at conferences and through the Perl Mongers, that frankly I could not imagine _not_ giving to TPF.
      The Perl culture, to which I think TPF contributes significantly, is just such an important, and treasured, part of my life that I feel like giving to TPF is akin to paying a psychiatrist, it really helps improve my sanity (at least what little is left of it  ;--).
