Just out of curiosity,can anyone tell me the number of certified Technical Architects are there? Is there anyplace where it displays a list of this certification holders?
According to this list, there are 103. I do not know how accurate it is.
As far as I know that's not information Salesforce gives out publicly. While I too would find it interesting to see such numbers (or per region).
I believe the verification page is the only public resource. There you're limited to looking up a person and viewing which certifications they have.
