Just wanted to day that I'm very pleasantly surprised at the amount of
funding that a somewhat obscure (to my perception) project like Pinto got.
I used to be more active in the Perl community a few years ago, and now I
still use Perl for scripting, but much less often than Meteor (the really
cool Node.JS real-time web app framework). Anyhow, glad to see Perl is
definitely not dead.
