  • As far as perl goes there is Market Trading, Webservices (not blogs and rdf, but actual useful web interfaces joining useful applications together), search engines and the still unsolved problem of ecommerce. There is also the whole geo-data space which is quite interesting, as well as the bio-perl arena and good old text munging which is getting more and more interesting with all the PartOfSpeach tagging and identifying meaning and context from natural language. As well as irc bots, etc.

    Of course there is lots of money to be made banging databases onto the web, and there are plenty of cowboys quite happy to knock up a PHP or ASP page to make your dodgy Access 'application' into an 'ecommerce website'.
