State of the Onion

As I was reviewing Slashdot's daily newsletter, a post about Larry Wall's annual State of the Onion address caught my eye. In case you're wondering, the Onion refers to Perl, and not to be confused with

I know nothing about Perl, other than it's a programming language (I think) scripting language, but I still found his address humorous and interesting. It almost made me want to learn Perl. In his speech, he referred to a saying that I saw on a poster a long time ago:

led by the unknowing,
are doing the impossible,
for the ungrateful.
We have done so much for so long with so little,
We are now qualified to do anything with nothing.

How true.
