As a Web developer employed at a Windows shop I haven't had a lot
of time to experience Perl Web development. I've briefly looked
at Catalyst and Dancer, but I haven't gone anywhere near far
enough to be comfortable with them (if I were my Web site would
be running on it already). I don't often find the time to
spectate the TPM talks, though I greatly appreciate the
invitations. If I do find the time I for one wouldn't mind any
kind of basic talk on the subject.

Perhaps not relevant at all, but if you weren't aware there is a
GNU project called "social" that seems to be a free software
replacement for Twitter functionality. I don't use Twitter
because I don't trust them so I don't really know what it's all
about, but I digress.

If writing a clone in Perl is a learning exercise or a Perl
substitute then that wouldn't be very useful, but if you were
simply trying to create a free software alternative it supposedly
already exists... :) Albeit, I haven't figured out how to use it
short of installing it on my own server, and I haven't found the
time to try that either..
