ActiveStatehas kicked off the first annual Programmers' Choice and Activators' Choice Awards. We'd like to honor those unnamed heroes who've *actively* contributed to making Perl and Python the most popular open source programming languages.
We're also acknowledging those we deem worthy for their accomplishments with Perl and Python in an Activators' Choice award. Following a month long discussion period of late caffeine-filled nights, our dev team will through a rigorous evaluation process cast their votes for one deserving Perl and Python programmer.
Winners will be announced March 6, 2001."
