  • I for one am definitely not!

    I have always been envoius of those who can write as well as program - Randall, Damian and Pierce to mention a few.

    I feel that there is (at least) two kinds of programmers:

    • the extrovert, artistic type, ie the ones whop can write lucid text, stand up at conferences and say sensible things etc.
    • the introvert, semi-autistic types who prefer to hide down deep in the innards of programs, who hate public speaking, who can't oput two words together without harming either.
    I find that I can put most perl people into either of those groups, without too much difficulty. Maybe the progress come from the combination - the introverts think and find the new ideas, while the extros publish them, making them understandable and usefull, so laying the foundations for the next cycle.

    Reading this over I am not quite sure I understand it, but maybe thats just an indication of which group I belong to.
