It's not just in Mac circles either - there's a very widespread
misconception that Perl is useful for system admins, web developers,
and little else. One thing I find personally frustrating is the
corollary, that Perl *programmers* must be admins or web devs. I find
that frustrating because I'm not an admin, and while I don't mind web
work, I don't want to focus on it exclusively.
So, what can be done to change that? It's basically a PR/evangelism
problem, which is well outside my area of expertise. Any suggestions?
