To me, that makes about as much sense as prosletyzing about, say, wrenches. Or engaging in a knock-down drag-out discussion about wrenches vs. screwdrivers being the “best” way to hammer a nail.

If you have that perception, that is of course unfortunate and might need some perception fine-tuning on your side. The - really simple - gist of what I've written is, that there is a huge imbalance between (and we take just ONE example here) e.g. the number of Python and Perl videos on YouTube.

One can develop that further and talk about the resulting number of TIOBE-relevant hits (there seems to be a constant factor plusminus 100:1 for any programming language), but that is not the gist it's a side effect. We at came to know of this significant imbalance only because we inspected the TIOBE index computations and verified the measured numbers.

If you do care about propagation of the Perl language, you may hear the Call for action and think/do something about delivering more Perl content to YouTube. Because as for newbies to programming in general, YT is much more likely the 1st station than - say -

Of course, if you do not care about propagation of the Perl programming language, simply ignore that Call for action. It's as easy as that.

Remember, most software is not a new project: it is legacy code.

True, but utterly irrelevant here, as we look only at the new projects. Our goal should be that most of the new projects would be done in Perl - if Perl was a suitable language for it ("suitable" - probably no one will/should write e.g. device drivers in Perl).

You're basically right in the rest of your post, but it's a different opera. - Not just another Perl Mongers Group.
