Kudos to the Microsoft MVP Program People


I was awarded the MVP recognition this year again for my work in the Windows Mobile world – 12th year running – and the award is really cool. It’s really cool not because it’s a shiny thing I can put on my shelf to make myself feel important (I buy big monitors for that ;-)), but because they’ve implemented a “token” system whereby each year re-awarded MVPs will get a new year slice they can put on top of the previous one. This prevents the tremendous waste of sending out the same award year after year with a new date stamped on it. I think it’s great that the people working on the MVP program came up with such a smart way to reduce waste.
