Following Gabor's lead, I have decided to periodically post links to my favorite YAPC presentations. You should definitely follow Gabor's Perl TV which probably will be updated far more often than my blog.
From the talk page:
Should we fear the future?
An almost non-technical look on Perl in the past, present and future.
No animals will be hurt in this presentation.
Basically, excellent material by Elizabeth Mattijsen for anyone who's ever wondered where Perl is going. You first need to to know where we have been.
