I would like to rant meta for a bit and string together a slew of separate experiences I have been having, re: the diminishing community supporting perl, thrusts to make new generations of coders (see: raspberry pi), and civic hacking (bringing the power of code to good to assist communities and governments... sometimes with problems they didn't know they had.) If we can tie all this together, perhaps a little perl evangelism can go a long way.
