SAGE Awards at LISA '05
2005 Outstanding Achievement Award
SAGE is pleased to announce Tom Limoncelli and Christine Hogan as the joint award winners of the 2005 Outstanding Achievement Award. They were awarded specifically for the book, The Practice of System and Network Administration. Published in 2001, the book is still relevant and continues to be cited frequently by the SAGE community as a topical work. The book advances the profession by advancing the administrator from a
technically competent individual into a professional system administrator.
This annual award goes to someone whose professional contributions to the
system administration community over a number of years merit special
The Chuck Yerkes Award
The 2005 award goes to Brandon Allbery. In particular, Brandon has been conspicuously and helpful in IRC as well
as on the regular sage-members mailing list. Brandon seems to answer more
questions on a wider array of topics than most other people on the IRC channel.
The Chuck Yerkes award is presented annually "to the person (or people) judged to have most significantly contributed to the mentoring of their peers through
contributions on the various SAGE member forums (sage-members, SAGEnews,
SAGEwire, IRC, etc.)."
