I spend quite a few hours each week working on various Perl related projects. All of these require me to interact with other volunteers. This isn’t always easy, but sometimes it’s astonishing just how much energy and enthusiasm there is to improve to things. rjbs recently wrote on Twitter:
I’m so tired of hearing “people are disappointing” or “people suck.” People are *amazing*!
And he’s right. My last couple of weeks in Perl have been really productive and I’d like to thank Dan Wright and Mark Keating for all the help they have given me. I’d also like to thank Jesse Vincent and Matt Trout, who inspire me to get things done.
