Iron Man ideas backlog

There are so many topics I want to write about and so little time to write.  Since I'm on vacation and supposedly relaxing and enjoying myself, I'm just going to list out some things that I might write about soon.  If any are particularly appealing, let me know and I'll bump it towards the top of the todo stack.

  • Capture::Tiny, the last capturing module you'll ever need
  • Version numbering lessons and pitfalls
  • Re-imagining PAUSE/CPAN
  • Perl's punctuated equilibrium
  • Disagreeing agreeably
  • p5p: Wizards, leaders, managers and coaches
  • How to regression test CPAN modules
  • Changing Perl 5 development: to what end?

I can see the appeal of microblogging -- perhaps I'll try to compose a 140 character summary of each one and see which are actually worth expanding on to any length.

    I'd like to see something on version numbers and Capture::Tiny please ;)

    Liked to see them all but this one first:

    p5p: Wizards, leaders, managers and coaches

    My votes are for "p5p: Wizards, leaders, managers and coaches", "Changing Perl 5 development: to what end?", and "Capture::Tiny, the last capturing module you’ll ever need".

    I apologize for giving a different answer than the other commenters, but the notion of "punctuated equilibrium" intrigues me.
