SharePoint MVP for another year

I’m privileged again to receive the MVP award for SharePoint. This is the 4th year for me and I definitely enjoy being part of the program. I’ve met a lot of great people, and I’ve had a lot of interesting conversations with product group folks - e.g. recently helping define how some upcoming IntelliTrace features for SharePoint development should work. Every year I like to jot down on my blog the community “things” I did in the previous year - this list is mainly for me rather than you, but here are some the things I got up to:

I also gave a couple of talks at Tech Ed U.S. recently, but I think technically they fall into the next “MVP year”.

As always though, I know I could do a far better job of serving the community, and blog comments are something I continue to struggle with. Seems the more articles are added to your “back catalogue”, the more comments will be generated. More recently I’ve started publishing them even if I haven’t got time to contribute an answer myself, but specific questions on what I’ve written will always get priority.

Anyway, it’s been a fun year – and with the next version of SharePoint round the corner, I think the next one will be even better :)

Congrats, mate! Be good to have you around another year. Don't think you're getting out of speaking in London next year, though - you don't have any more excuses left!
