I disagree there. If companies are satisfied that it says something about a person if they have the certificate, then it will work. I think you're building castles in the air assuming HR departments and recruitment consultants know who Larry Wall is.
If that's the case, they won't know who any
certifying body is. Might as well
print up one of your own. I think they've been doing that at some of the TPCs anyway.
I got one of mine somewhere at home.
Certification is useless without authority blessing. Larry will not bless. The senior Perl community will respect (and have respected) Larry's action on this. Therefore, any attempt to end-run this decision will be seen as rogue, and just as pointless as printing up your own.
So go ahead, print up your own. You want to be certified? Do it.
