Increasing the Impact of PL Research

PL research is as consequential as ever; how can we make it more impactful? I suggest three ways: (1) expand the tent and lower the barriers to entering it; (2) venture outside the tent, taking PL knowledge and ideas to other communities, to address their problems; and (3) join or organize collaborative efforts attacking substantial problems, such as deployable AI or a quantum programming stack, the solution to which involves PL techniques, but many others besides.
