The Matrix Reloaded is coming out today, and I am wondering if the movie will finally confirm my suspicions that Neo is a Perl programmer. In the first movie, we learned that Neo (aka Thomas Anderson) was a corporate computer programmer by day and a feared hacker at night. Other evidence of Perl use includes:
- Neo was probably the best programmer at his place of employment, but he wasn't being rewarded with a good salary, as suggested by his crappy apartment.
- Neo's kung-fu is the best.
- Neo knows how to dress.
- People see him as the messiah.
- Neo can leap buildings in a single bound and is endowed with other super powers.
