Larry Speaks

A quote from Larry Wall, the creator of Perl, delivering a speech at the Atlanta Linux Showcase and Conference, on Perl 6:

As I was flying here on Delta Airlines, the monitor was showing all sorts of happy sayings.

"If you can dream it, you can do it."

    -- Walt Disney

Now this is actually false (massive laughter). I think Walt was confused between necessary and sufficient conditions. If you don't dream it, you can't do it, that is certainly accurate.
