Richard Stallman as St. IGNUcius

Richard Stallman is an activist in the Free Software Movement, which he founded in 1983. The Open Source Movement split off from the Free Software Movement in 1998, and Stallman does not normally go to events labeled "Open Source". He participated in OSCON in 2002 as a "visitor" from the Free Software Movement.

Lingua::EN::Ambiguity is a Perl implementation of algorithms to perform statistical disambiguation of word senses; in other words, to allow programs to differentiate between the senses of a word within a text. Using this code, a system is made aware of differences between "car with wheels", "car on the rails", "car as in elevator", and so on. (www.brians.org)

Pier Fumagalli and Hillary.

Pier Fumagalli: I love introducing bugs, "NullPointerException, this is OutOfMemoryError. OutOfMemoryError, this is NullPointerException"...
Hillary: Just make it work, damn it!

Most of us here on #perl are here because we enjoy hanging out with other people who use Perl. Most of us enjoy helping others with Perl problems and with learning perl.

As with most free software support systems, however, the avalanche of repetitive and trivial questions starts to wear even the most dedicated helpers out. This is my attempt to reduce confusion, help others help themselves, and reduce burn-out on the part of the nice people in the channel.

I'm jumping with joy that I can be so creative with open source software! The cool thing about my job is that I really can be creative. I'm both a programmer and an interface person because we all are in my group. (www.ragingwomen.org)
