Weekly Perl 6 mailing list summary for 25 February - 3 March, 2007

by Ann Barcomb

This week on the Perl 6 mailing lists

"It seems you are presuming a Waterfall model of development here. We're not doing the Waterfall, we're doing the Whirlpool, where the strange attractor whirls around with feedback at many levels but eventually converges on something in the middle. In other words, a whirlpool sucks, but the trick is to position your whirlpool over your intended destination, and you'll eventually get there, though perhaps a bit dizzier than you'd like."

-- Larry Wall, in 'What criteria mark the closure of perl6 specification'
