certification and salary

So there is this story over at yahoo from newsfactor. It is about tech certifications. I've frequently threatened to pursue such things, though I've avoided it in the end. In any case, they've discovered some somewhat interesting things. Such as people with certifications generally get paid a fair amount, though it is unclear about how much that is in any notable relation to their peers….. though they do have stats from magazines and providers that certainly substantiate their position.
