I am happy to say I have been renewed as a Microsoft MVP. This year I've been awarded in the Desktop Experience category. This is my third category so far in the program. A brief look back as I was first award in July 2004.
2004 - Windows Server - Networking
2005 - Windows Server - Networking
2006 - Windows Server - Networking
2007 - Windows Server - Networking
2008 - Enterprise Security - Networking
2009 - Enterprise Security - Networking
2010 - Desktop Experience
I still plan on being actively involved and paying attention to what is going on in Security and more specifically in networking. Most of the focus will be around IPv6 as I am now a co-chair on the California IPv6 Task Force.
I needs to extend some thanks to some Microsoft folks:
Jake Grey - MVP Lead
Emily Freet - MVP Regional Manager, Americas
Stephen Rose - Sr. Community Manager - Windows OS
Chris Avis, Harold Wong and Chris Henley - IT Pro Evangelist - DPE - West Region team
Also, thanks to Jennelle Crothers - fellow Microsoft MVP and PacITPros member for helping to make the User Group experience what it is, couldn't have made it this far without your help.
