Is the Perl community schizophrenic?

Recently, I've been reading with great interest about the future of Perl, and -- more specifically -- about how the outside sees Perl and how Perl might need a director of marketing. Frankly, and at the risk of rocking the boat, I'll propose that Perl needs more than just a marketing director, or someone on the outside to do a survey; Put simply: Perl needs a creative agitator. (Or, perhaps more appropriately, a creative benevolent dictator.…

Semantically speaking: Why CSS frameworks make sense

After a good banter back-and-forth with my colleague here on the New Internationalist Web Team about CSS frameworks, I thought it would be helpful to jot down the key themes of the debate and possible solutions. Hopefully this will benefit other teams that are managing large collections of inter-linked sites that evolve over long periods of time. Many of the leading minds of the “semantic Web” movement, like Jeffrey Zeldman and Andy Clarke (full disclosure: Andy is leading the upcoming…

Uncovering the true "face" of Perl

Following on the last post about Prettier Perl Web sites and taking Sebastian Riedel's Don’t explain what you think would look better, just make a mockup and show us! challenge to heart, I spent some time looking at Perl's existing design patterns. Specifically, I wanted to take a closer look at two established Perl brands and to expose the underlying elements of their design consistency; the typography, colours, and so on. The two I chose -- because they look like they were developed by…

Is "crowdsourcing" the new "design by committee"?

While asking for input on the New Internationalist redesign process the other day, one of my friends replied (in jest) “Is ‘crowdsourcing’ the new ‘design by committee’?” It got me thinking about why I’m excited by open and transparent design processes, and how concepts like crowdsourcing are exactly the opposite of design by committee. (Well, sometimes.) For me, the excitement stems from a passion for learning.…

Perl: Love it, or hate it, but don't ignore it.

Call me a curmudgeon (and many do), but I just can't understand why intelligent folks make the choice to completely ignore Perl. I can understand if you don't want to use it yourself -- that's all cool -- but I wish folks would at least give it the nod it deserves. Case in point: I was reading Simon Wilson's excellent blog post about Node.…

Perl in your city

Over the years, I've been involved with a fair number of Bricolage implementations for different organizations. (For those that don't know, Bricolage is a large, Perl-based, publishing system.) Many of these organizations don't have a full-time Perl programmer on staff, and instead rely on external contracts to do the heavy lifting that comes up from time-to-time.…
