I’m thrilled to report that I’ve been awarded a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award once again in 2008, though this time I am a Connected Systems MVP, instead of a BizTalk MVP.  The difference  is nearly inconsequential, as I will still be working with the same team, but over the last year I’ve begun to focus more and more on things outside of purely BizTalk.  I’d like to take a moment to thank Microsoft for the award, this program is absolutely fabulous and I couldn’t be happier than to be associated with it.  More corporations should examine the MVP program and think about how they can connect with their community the way Microsoft does.
