Lies, damn lies, and statistics.


OK, you don't trust Big Brother Alexa.

On del.icio.us, the top three sites with 'perl' as their first tag have been 
saved by 751, 659, and 411 people.  Compare that to Ruby, and you get 3946, 
3423, and 3260.  Or are the type of people who use a service like del.icio.us 
less likely to be Perl hackers for some reason?

Are we witnessing the tipping point?
