Here's a full network listing of all the certifications within the IT and networking field: http://certification...ady_848A-US.pdf
Found it today. When I got to that I just went "What the hell have I gotten myself into. Just look how deep the rabbit hole goes."
If you can't see it, it's here: http://certification...er_roadmap.aspx
Just click 'view all certifications' then the print button.
Speaking of "certs" here's a bit of a history lesson on the Internet:
The CERT Coordinator Center is the emergency team for the US for Internet attacks, established after the Morris worm incident in 1988.
The Morris worm which was written by a student at Cornell University and launched from MIT to hide that fact. It was designed to measure how big the Internet was, inserting itself within computers and passing by those that already had a copy of it. But it spread too fast and too much even within the same computer, as the protocol for copying included copying within the system even though it responded "yes, there is already a copy inside" - a defense intended to combat the possibility that people caught onto the idea of what the worm was doing. The kid was convicted to a three year probation, 400 hours community service, and a $10,000 fine.
Gene Spafford was the first to analyze the Morris worm. He's a renowned Internet figure, being one of the members of the Usenet backbone cabal, which managed how a lot of information/data/news flowed back in the 80s and 90s. And that's cool.

"Censorship is telling a man he can't have a steak just because a baby can't chew it."
— Mark Twain
“I divide my officers into four classes; the clever, the lazy, the industrious, and the stupid. Each officer possesses at least two of these qualities. Those who are clever and industrious are fitted for the highest staff appointments. Use can be made of those who are stupid and lazy. The man who is clever and lazy however is for the very highest command; he has the temperament and nerves to deal with all situations. But whoever is stupid and industrious is a menace and must be removed immediately!”
— General Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord
