I joined the bioperl mailing list today, mainly because of the bioinformatics article by Ewan.

Thanks to samth and schoen for certifying me. I'm not sure I should be a journeyer, but I'm glad to have the priviledges. I noticed that somebody had the nerve to certify Alan Cox as apprentice, so obviously standards are not uniform. I think you should get a "point" for each certification from somebody of that level or higher. Thus Alan Cox would be a 175-point master (I didn't really count, but it's a LOT) and I would be a 1-point journeyer.

Also, I noticed that Wendy Seltzer joined, so I certified her. She is a lawyer who hacks perl while she's not fighting for "Your Rights Online" via the Openlaw project.
