Have you published a number of articles on developerWorks (or would you like to)?
There's a new recognition program for authors who publish on developerWorks a lot: the IBM developerWorks Author Achievement Recognition Program. It's a way for those who have published several articles and related material on dW to get credit, a title which easily summarizes the accomplishment. There's a current list of recognized authors, which is updated quarterly.
There are three different achievement levels--contributing, professional, and master--which show increasing levels of accomplishment.
If you've published on dW and would like to receive this recognition, About the program explains how to register and how to gain points. This also applies to anyone who would like to become an author and start tracking points for recognition. (Sort of like a frequent flyer program for authors.) When you register, you'll get a welcome package with a tracking tool; this may take a couple of weeks, esp. if you have published several articles because the tool will be prepopulated with that list of contributions. Once you have the tool, you can use it to track your progress and submit it when you achieve a new level.
Also, even if you're "just" a reader of articles, check out the list of recognized authors to see who's been contributing a lot, and then search to find their articles and check them out.
