I have liked the idea behind all this which I see as an emerging form of education that offers individual accreditation. The notion that doing it will lead one to inheriting land from someone seems fuzzy to me. It could happen, but I'm not really believing it would for me, nor am I really after that. However it could be used to provide proof, or at least evidence, that you have certain skills, or have at least done specific things. This could be handy when applying for some jobs or to prove to someone that you aren't just an airhead hippie idealist who has no real conception of hard work. However, I don't know that an "employer" would care if I said I was PEP certified in something or not, since most don't know what this is or means. What might count with this hypothetical employer is to be able to direct them to one place where they can see all the documentation of the projects I've done. Unless I'm way out of date in how things work for PEP I think finding all of one's documentation would involve digging through all sorts of forum threads. (Of course, I could also have everything gathered together in a file on my own computer.) I wonder if there was a way to make the posting and gathering of the documentation of the project happen in a section of individual profiles? This way both I and anyone else could look at my profile and see all together what I've done. Is there a way to post documentation on a section in the personal profiles and then click a button to indicate else where that it needs review and certification if acceptable?
I guess the last time I looked at it all I felt overwhelmed trying to make some sense and order of it. Not knowing where to start. It has been a while so perhaps that order is there now.
