Like others in this list, I've not found much Perl work in the 
Seattle area.  .NET and Java seem to be dominating the field.  I've 
been wondering why. Obviously, it's a Microsoft town, so the rise of 
.NET and ASP make sense.  But why has Java so eclipsed Perl here?

Is this due to a lack of good PR for Perl?  Seems like the only time 
I hear about Perl here is when some company is switching their old 
Perl code for a new <fill in the blank> system.

Despite the obvious technical goodness of Perl, maybe it's not being 
sold enough to corporate management?
