MVP Summit 2007

There was a delay in posting this, but just wanted to write a quick note on the MVP Summit that I attended last week (March 12 - March 15)

Overall this was an awesome event, well organized, great sessions.

Thanks to Sasha Krsmanovic (MVP Lead - Canada) who provided all the Canadian MVP's with Red Olympic Hockey Jerseys worn on the 2nd day of the summit.  This really pumped up the Canadian MVPs at Bill Gate's key note that carried on during the  rest of the Summit. I received quite of few comments from other non Canadian MVPs about the jersey even when I wasn't wearing the jersey on day 3 of the summit

First couple of days at the summit I was hanging out with fellow MVP Objectsharpees
(past/present and future?):
