Best Practical is sponsoring a new set of awards in the Perl community: the NJAPHs (Not Just Another Perl Hacker). Those are the crazy people who do all that whiz-bang techy stuff with Perl. Now we'll have awards for both community and technical acheivement.
I don't have more details at the moment, but last I heard they'll be awarded at OSCON and voting will happen through an electoral-college-like system through the Perl Mongers groups. I didn't get to stick around YAPC for the announcement, so this is just the stuff Jesse told me in the hallway.
