In cleaning out some old paperwork, I re-discovered my original MVP award letter, dated 12-13-1995. Yes, it was a real letter, mailed to me!
The following year, this letter from Bill Gates was included. Some very insightful comments here… one I like:
“The interactive network will allow us to work together, to instantly communicate with each other, and stay connected, no matter where we are.”
Quite a profound statement given it was 1996, and I received a letter from Microsoft the year before!
It has been an amazing 23 years, have met a LOT of really nice people during this time. Being part of the community has had a very positive impact on my career.
I’ll also offer a shout-out to the MVP leads and the product teams that really value our opinions.
