Microsoft MVP Award – January 2011 Awards !

I’m always happy to see new Microsoft MVPs coming onboard. No matter what the Country is, what language is, what the activities are, there’s one thing in common and I’ll never stop saying this out loud: PASSION.

Together with other Microsoft MVPs, the local subsidiaries and Microsoft Corporation, we identified top community contributors, within many different areas of expertise, who really deserved the MVP Award !


Particularly for the Region I represent (CEE & Italy), I would like to announce the newly awarded MVPs as of the 1st of January, 2011:

    So it’s Italy 8 – CEE 12. That must be a good percent for Italy, comparing to the whole CEE. 😉

      @Marius: this is up to the local subsidiaries, the communities and the MVPs as well. As you know, I got nominees from these different sources and I don’t mind from which Country are from: my personal commitment is to make sure we have quality MVPs ! (you can imagine how hard can be to have MVPs, let’s say, in Albania or in other very small Countries ;))

        I’m not blaming or accusing anybody of anything. It was just a remark based on some numbers.
