State of the Onion 2000
Larry Wall goes on about music in this year's address with a little insight into the direction being taken with Perl6.

Sometimes I get the distinct impression that Perl is more a cult than it is a programming language. I also sometimes think that Perl is the worst designed language ever made (assuming that there is actually any design to be found).

Ah well, lots of people are getting things done with Perl, so I better not complain too loudly. :-)
