+ - Perl Gets $100,000 From a grateful craigslist->

Submitted by mikejuk
mikejuk (1801200) writes "The craigslist Charitable Fund has donated $100,000 to the Perl community for Perl5 maintenance and general use by the Perl Foundation.
craigslist gets more than 30 billion views per month and it is mostly written in Perl. The entire architecture of the system is open source — a proxy array based on Perl and memcache and a backend provided by Apache, memcache, MySQL and, of course Perl.
So you could see this as a successful enterprise giving something back to open source — which is how it should be."
