Surprised to see in my podcast feed an episode about an insignificant program which I'd written two decades earlier, I thought I'd record a response with some thoughts on free software's long tail.

My new favorite episode

If this episode doesn't warm your heart, you don't have one.

Thanks for this Joey

I was surprised and very happy that my episode about pdmenu resulted in you becoming an HPR contributor. I hope you feel motivated to contribute more!

It was a great episode. Also, as a Perl enthusiast I'm delighted to hear that's where pdmenu originated :-)
