Hi there,

yesterday I went over the list of rss and atom feeds I used to monitor for Perl-related articles and disabled the ones that did not have a post for more than 2 years or where the site behind them was gone.

This cleaning was long overdue, but doing it now all of them together made me sad. So many clever and nice people we used to have in the Perl community who used to write posts. And so few keep writing.

Where are the others? Are they still using Perl at work? At least as a hobby?

But don't despair, next week Mohammad Anwar is the editor and he is very enthusiastic :)

Enjoy your week!
