I saw a few curious pieces in the past week, all related to recognition, and there was a bunch of updates on my LinkedIn network around awards nominations and appreciations.

First my favorite from abstrusegoose

Second Kerala government claiming Chief Minister’s office and the government are independent and have pretty much nominated themselves for a UN award

Third Monsanto sponsors an award and gives away the award to their own CTO with total disregard to the purpose of the award around food security and none of Monsanto’s work ever came close to achieving even 1% of the outcomes.

Of course nobody other than the losers pay attention to the selection criteria, objectivity and data collection methods. Pity…
