One in Four Thousand: My Microsoft MVP Award
From Microsoft’s website: “Worldwide, there are over 100 million participants in technical communities; of these participants, there are fewer than 4,000 active Microsoft MVPs.”
About two weeks ago I joined the ranks of Microsoft MVPs in ASP.NET. My best estimate is that there are around 350 ASP.NET MVPs worldwide, and I feel truly honored to be among them.
The award was based on my blog, technical articles, open source and forum contributions, and user group involvement.
Perks include private forums, a certificate that’s nicer than my college diploma, a 1GB leather-bound thumb drive, a 1-year MSDN or TechNet subscription, and the MVP Summit, where Microsoft pays for all the MVPs to stay in lavish hotels in Redmond while they meet with their corresponding product teams.
Looks like it’s going to be a good year.
