Microsoft Meets MVPs

I mentioned that I was up in Redmond for most of the week. And you know who else showed up? About 1,600 Microsoft MVPs!

There was a clampdown on journalists so tight that it would make Muammar Gaddafi proud. All 1,600 attendees signed non-disclosures and so far no real news about future products has leaked out.

If you aren't familiar with MVPS, these folks are true experts in Microsoft technologies. They help spread the word, solve problems and give feedback on where Microsoft should be going.

It's a cool program and becoming an MVP is a real honor.
