Perl Wiki has the freedom and drive to use its space at Perl.Wikia.com to develop a praxis and practicum for learning and applying what we learn to real-world needs.
An unfettered MediaWiki environment presents a remarkable opportunity for educators both inside and outside of the world of Wikipedia:Computer science and Wikipedia:Information technology. Forming working relationships with other groups that share the MediaWiki context is an essential directive for Perl.Wikia.com.
Perl Wiki will maintain a close relationship with Wikimedia projects as a kind of "two-way street" drawing upon and learning from the current content there, while contributing to its completion in terms of siting sources and verifying references that relate to aspects of programming especially where perl is involved.
We are also conversant with the Staff at Wikipedia, Wiktionary and other Wikimedia projects.
Meta, Wikia and WikiProjects
The Perl WikiProject is especially tied to community-building efforts across the Wikia planet and to WikiProject assessment techniques at Wikipedia. Developing social software that allows seemless integration between WikiProjects across .edu, .org, .net, .gov and .com domain contexts is essential.
The Perl Foundation
The Perl Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization based in Holland, Michigan.
The Perl Wikia has no formal association with The Perl Foundation at this time. But hey... that could change. originally posted: 15:51, 6 October 2006 (UTC) by CQ. to Perl Wiki:Staff#The Perl Foundation

The proposed CPAN:POE::Component::WikiaPerl, if it works, might grant us a shot at being officially recognized as the Wikia chapter of the Programming Republic of Perl. (Ya gotta earn these kinds of things)
