Hi Daniel,
I definitely agree that standardization could be difficult to put into practice and I don't think that standardization could ever be perfect. I do, however, think that by having more stringent standards, and by requiring letter writers to support their claims with concrete examples, the letters would be more of an honest reflection of the applicant. This could also potentially reduce the scale of the advantage conferred to the writer more skilled in the craft or code. There would likely always be a slight advantage to the experienced letter writer but these honest letters would ideally make it a more even playing field.
What are your thoughts on the subject? Do you think there is a way to eliminate the advantage conferred to the more experienced or skilled letter writer?
