OK. Everyone is talking about this Advogato thing so I figure I have to have a look. I set up an account and I'm running through the list certifying (or is that Certifying?) everyone whose name sounds familiar if it turns out I know anything about them. Did Alan Cox up as Master; not because I know anything about the man, but, well, because he's Alan Cox for crying out loud! :-)
Then I stumble onto Chris DiBona's page...
His Notes say:
Blah Blah Blah, VA Linux, Blah BlahHe has a link to his homepage. Not a single solitary diary entry. A gazillion people have certified him. He hasn't certified anyone... At all!
Whatever else Advogato is, it's apparently designed to bring out the worst tendencies towards mental masturbation. :-(
