  • The first inkling I had that Slash journals were blogs was at YAPC::NA::2002, I think. Before that, I thought we were just communicating with one another.

    I write here because I have friends out there (or enemies, or whatever) who sometimes express an interest in what I have to say. There's smart people here who sometimes give me valuable feedback on my ideas, be they code, religion, or politics. I've got friends far and near who know to come here to see what I'm up to, too. Perhaps most of all, I write here to fulfill the primordial hacker morality of sharing information. When I learn something about Perl/Oracle/whatever, I throw it in here. Maybe people will notice and find it useful. Maybe people will link to it, or take what I write and turn it into a HOWTO, or whatever. I haven't given anything significant to the Perl community in code -- but maybe I can give back by sharing what little I know.
