Report on the Perl 6

Report on the Perl 6 Announcement
Last Monday, nobody knew that anything unusual was about to happen. On Tuesday, the Perl 6 project started. On Wednesday, Larry announced it at his "State of the Onion" address at the Perl conference.

Yes, it all really did happen that fast.

...according to Larry, "Jon Orwant ... pointed out that it was going to be useless to invent a new constitution if everyone was just going to say, 'Ho, hum.'" Jon suggested that Perl try to go in a new direction, and do something new and big; he used Napster as an example of a new, big idea.
The influence of Napster has influnced the Perl community as well as the music industry.
