Dan's Parrot post-mortem

Last year at OSCON 2004 I sat and listened to Dan Sugalaski talk about Parrot in the real world, and although my blog post during the session didn't show it much, I was impressed by the deep magic. Enough, in fact, that I talked about it at the London Perl Workshop later that year...

In a recent post to his blog Dan talks frankly about why he decided to step down from the Parrot project. The post caused a lot of discussion on the London.pm mailing list, and for those people waiting for Perl 6 its an interesting look inside the Parrot development process.
