One of the first things I do each morning after I wake up is check new emails on my phone (I know . . . geek).  Most of it is junk mail, but this morning one email stood out – “MVP of the Year Dinner”.  What is this?

“Congratulations on being awarded MVP Of The Year, based on your extraordinary community contributions in 2012! Thank you for your contributions in the forums, Connect, giving feedback, speaking, and all that you do.”

Wow!  I’m awake now!!

Words cannot express how honored and humbled I am to be awarded as Windows Azure MVP of the Year.  This is my third year as a Windows Azure MVP.  The Windows Azure MVPs are a fairly small and close group.  They’re some of the smartest, most passionate people I’ve had the pleasure to get to know.  To be honored in such a way by this group that I respect so much is very special.  I don’t know what else to say other than “Thank You”!

Actually, there are two Windows Azure MVPs of the Year.  Congratulations to Magnus Martensson!
