Not really.

First you said perl was dead for web startups because nobody else was
using it one meeting of self-selecting web 2.0 muppets.

Then you said that other languages are breaking into new fields but
couldn't back it up when I pointed out that you were wrong.

Define your criteria - I'm pretty impressed with Perl's frameworks -
there isn't a CMS that I'd pick in Perl, but none in any other
language that I'd use either. Fortunately I haven't done that in a
long while so I'm not concerned.

Learning to trim quotes and sigs would be good ;)

I could also suggest you look harder for perl startups - wibbling on
perl monks and expecting them to beat a path to your posting isn't
exactly a serious effort.

Come back when you have a survey to match Kirrily Robert's recent one.
