I couldn't resist... I certified myself at Journeyer level, and Advogato upgraded me... Now I feel a sense of responsibility to really do something useful!
Phone: Been a busy day on the phone. Lots of show follow up stuff after last week at LinuxWorld.
LPI Internal stuff - several folks called to vent about issues they are facing in doing their work. We are all just here to make a contribution, so it seems that by working together it can all be for the good of our industry. I am constantly reminded that communication is the key. Thankfully, I think I work with some terrific people who are willing to make the effort to communicate and work through problems. It's good to be a part of such a good group of people.
SAGE stuff - looks very good to build a win-win for systems administrators by making LPI the Linux portion of the sage cert. Had a great call with their consultant, who wants to help build a training channel program too. Should be interesting to see how far into bed we get.
Marketing Plan - I swear, as soon as I get past one hurdle, another shows up. It's all good,but I think Chuck is going to give up on me soon if I don't submit something soon. Now I'm working on an education/channel development program and I just don't have the background I need so I'm calling a few friends for help. Chuck, I swear I am working on it, and all I can say is, when it's done, it should be good!!!
Sent messages to hiring organizations recruiting for Linux technical folks, telling them to consider LPI certification when hiring.
Completed a task for CSM. Had to create it from scratch as a result of my husband downloading the Sircam virus last month. That sucked.
LI Dean Taylor of PartnerAxis is a dynamo with lots of great ideas. His contribution is valuable, and I look forward to seeing him make a huge difference as we move forward with various projects.
Submitted proposal for giving a talk at LinuxWorld in NYC 2002.
