eWeek reports on the mod_perl system that PlusThree (employer of Perl hackers Perrin Harkins and Sam Tregar) built for the United Federation of Teachers. The article starts:
For the 150,000 members of the United Federation of Teachers, paper forms, phone calls and hours spent standing in line are no longer current events; instead, they are consigned to the history books.
I'm pretty pleased with the article, especially since it mentions mod_perl, the Krang CMS, and other open source tools we use. Good to see those in a major IT periodical. Nitpick: my name is spelled "Harkins", not "Hawkins."
I've fixed my typo. Sorry about that...
