I was recently informed that I have received MVP status from Microsoft for the 2nd consecutive year. The MVP experience is a great one; it is a lot of hard work, but provides excellent opportunities to exchange information with Microsoft employees and other MVPs.
The highlight of my first year was definitely attending the MVP Summit and interacting with both the Product Group and other MVPs from all of the world. I met some great people there and continue to stay in regular contact with many of them.
