General Development The purpose of this essay is to explain why I believe Perl 6, the way it currently seems to progress, is the wrong thing at the wrong time, and why I predict (with all the expected caveats of predicting something) that it won't be successful. I will also suggest a better alternative for the future of Perl which makes more sense at this point.

This guy is NOT a programmer.

For someone who claims to be a "programmer", I found it extremely funny that he does not know the difference between a programming language and a scripting language. This whole article is by a news reporter and NOT a programmer, as obvious by reading every paragraph he wrote.
