I'm reviewing it in depth, up to about page 70. So far I'm impressed ...
it seems much like the sort of tone that the SAGE Salary Survey conveys.
It's also very interesting to see how the different schools of thought
played out in the survey--they're clearly clumped in the results.
One thing that sticks in my mind is that the survey only covers
community feedback. Where's the rest of the roadmap for moving the cert
forward? The details of the business side is something that I'm very
interested in. Even non-profits require a viable business model.
I'm eager to see the what the next step is and help to get the cert off
I think it only makes sense to seek out and identify structures of authority,
hierarchy, and domination in every aspect of life, and to challenge them;
unless a justification for them can be given, they are illegitimate, and
should be dismantled, to increase the scope of human freedom.
