  • There is nothing that the EPO is doing that couldn't be done by others, but it can be said that the difference between a successful entrepreneur and a failure is simply doing it.

    If the EPO fails and collects dust, some will say that it is a failure. I'll view it as a learning experience about what to fix the next time something comes around.

    Also, my focus on EPO is to help Perl's external facing image. The EPO Extended Core is good for the various Best Practiceâ„¢ stuff, but the marketing is where I'm hopeful.

    Perl's a great language, but with a horribly dense echo chamber that few people want to enter. Enlightened Perl's success will come easier with the Perl Community (or rather, a part of the Perl community; I don't think it is possible to have the whole thing ;)). However, marketing to the outside world doesn't really require support from the community, outside of the community not actively trying to hurt the effort.

    If I can get people who have never used Perl to evaluate something, I'll view my time as a success.

    Even if it is just a temporary fad... who knows, it may only last until Christmas.
