But useful talk has pretty much left the mailing list
for IRC, various excellent Iron Man blogs and the perhaps not quite so
excellent perlmonks.   The last technical thread here was about
a month ago (about UTF-8).

I don't wish to sound too negative here but use of the net has changed
in the last 10 years and the list is a secondary source now and no longer
a primary one, apart from events such as LWP which is an obvious

And I'm not even sure it's worth forwarding all the events on 

or whatever to the list anymore and I used to do such posts before.

But that's true of any media (including this one).
