Marketing is something for everybody to get involved in. Here's a small contribution I made earlier this year, by getting Perl into a question on the BBC TV quiz show ‘Only Connect’.

That episode will be repeated soon in the UK: the series is on Wednesdays at 19:00 on BBC4, and I think episode 12 will be on September 12th, after which it will be on iPlayer for a week on this page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rm4j1

The maths puzzle I mentioned was posted on Richard Wiseman's blog here, complete with my Perl solution: http://j.mp/sum100
