Hmmm...turning perlmonks into an e-commerce site beyond the Offering Plate
is iffy in my mind. I'm wondering if that's not best suited for some other site.
I'd much rather see a group gathering, live chat, teaching area which is for free. No signing up required- just stop by on Saturday at 4:00pm EST and....
For example, I feel that I have a firm grasp on Perl Curses. If someone doesn't have a specific question, but would rather "just learn to use Curses", I'd offer to go through some simple excercises and examples with explanations. Currently, folks like that are turned away with harsh RTFMs and such which put perlmonks.org on the map of anti-newbie as suggested in a previous Meditation. So, I would announce that I would offer a Curses Colloquium at such-and-such a time- stop by if you'd like! This area might contain a live chat area where the lecturer has precedence and can filter content. This is so interesting, I just might do this on my own server. Thanks for the thinkjuice, tilly!
