After a 19-days pause, I'm finally journaling again. Sorry for the respite -- I was massively distracted by the sudden exposure in Taiwanese mainstream media about my runtime typecasting. Despite me never granting any interviews, they simply translated most of my private blog's content and put a sensational (albeit mostly positive) spin on it. Oh well.
Currently I'm in Israel, massively enjoying the high-resolution Reality here, in particular thanks to gaal's uncanny ability to locate (and produce) excellent food.
Last night's dinner in Jerusalem with Larry and Israeli hackers was also quite enjoyable; much to my surprise, I discovered that Larry follows #perl6 irc logs very closely, which explains the recent phenomenon of Larry posting on p6l (e.g. the goto and macro specs) shortly after it's been discussed on #perl6.
I finally got my .de visa today, which means I'd be able to show up at GPW. Unfortunately I had to skip the first day of the conference, due to conflicting scheduling with OSDC.il.
The five-days Pugs Hackathon starts tomorrow at Mount Arbel, with a healthy mix of 10+ lambdafolks and camelfolks. I plan to give Perl6-on-Perl5 a serious push during this week, and carry the same technique for Perl6-on-Parrot in early March with Leo, right after the GPW. More details later -- if we can get internet working in the hackathon site, that is. :-)
