I hope that is not against the etiquette here to post links to my
PerlMonks posts (it looks like very on topic in this thread):
Have you heard about recent startups using Perl?
http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=676335 - Looks like not many new
companies use Perl
What can bring the excitement back to Perl?
It is the ecosystem - http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=674541 -
Frankly I would not choose Perl (as language) over Python or Ruby -
but nothing can beat CPAN. And it is not that easy to copy - because
it is not only technology but also the organisations, the culture
