Google is watching me but I’m watching Google also

I wrote three articles about Google’s large repos and groupcache (#1, #2) in Japanese.

Perl - The Detroit of Scripting Languages

I saw Stevan Little’s new slide - Perl - The Detroit of Scripting Languages. In this slide, he mentioned my ex-colleague’s Perl implementation. Yeah, he is implementing Perl. How insane…

Anyway I really like Stevan’s talk about Perl. Some of Perl programmers make me frustrated because they usually ignored other languages, and then found new things which someone imported from other languages to Perl. “Hey, we discovered that we can separete web applications from web servers!” - yeah, I knew it because Java did it in 1997.
