Perlbuzz news roundup 2009-03-21

I don't see having an autoposting widget for Perlbuzz any time soon, so if you want these more current, keep an eye on the Perlbuzz Twitter account directly.

Hi Andy! Thanks for all your work on perlbuzz.

I accept the use of shortened URLs on micro-blogging services - although's shortened URLs or's shortened URLs are shorter than's and less obnoxious). However, I don't see why they should be present in a normal (non-micro) blog post. Please evaluate them into their longer forms by using LWP or whatever.

I should also note that I've recently been micro-blogging on and they allow you to share a link to an arbitrarily-long URL inside a single message, which is one aspect that Plurk is superior to Twitter. So you may consider using it instead of Twitter (and Plurk can syndicate to Twitter AFAIR).
