Some stuffs needed to be passed along :-)
In the lands where the camel roams, the white (albino) camel
is a rare and revered individual. The White Camel Awards
recognize significant, non-technical contributions to the
language and community of Perl. Each award comes with a
White Camel trophy and a cash award of $3000.
The awards were initiated Perl Mongers and O'Reilly &
Associates at the 1999 Perl Conference.
== Perl Advocacy - Chris Nandor
Chris is one of the leading advocates of Perl. Besides his
regular Perl News column available on the Web, in email, and
in the print and Web editions of The Perl Journal and
maintaining the community discussion site use.perl.org, he
is the leading advocate of MacPerl, ported by Matthias
Neeracher. Chris is the author of the perlport manual page
which gives Perl developers a guide to writing portable
== Perl User Groups - Elaine Ashton
Elaine has been active in Perl Mongers almost since its
beginning. She has been involved in the New York, St.
Louis, and Boston Perl user groups which were some of the
first user groups to get started. She donated time and
resources which have been invaluable in helping to establish
other new user groups, and she has hosted large user group
meetings and social events at her home.
== Perl Community - Nat Torkington
Nat has been involved in many areas of Perl besides his many
technical contributions. He's a major contributor to the
core Perl documentation and the Perl FAQ, senior editor of
The Perl Journal, moderator of the Perl advocacy mailing

Perl Conference in 1999 and 2000. Nat is the coauthor of The
