I maintain the CPAN and write books. Okay, wrote a book. Okay, coauthored a book.

Being the gullible man that I am, in the summer of 2000 I took upon the duty of maintain Perl 5.7, the development branch that finally lead into Perl 5.8.0 in July 2002, and 5.8.1 in September 2003. Now as of August 2003 I'm retired from all that and Hugo van der Sanden is in charge of the 5.9 development branch, Nicholas Clark of the 5.8 maintenance branch, and Rafael Garcia-Suarez of the 5.6 maintenance branch. If you want to follow the Perl 5 development, abandon all hope.

I have written some Perl modules.
