Just thought I would share with you some fantastic news I received the other day. Paul Woods – the guy who created / is The New Paperclip was recognised by Microsoft for technical leadership with a Most Valuable Professional award.
Specifically it was an award in the Business Productivity / Word category
So what is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award?
From the MVP website:
“Microsoft is pleased to recognize and award its Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs). We present the MVP Award to thank individuals for their exceptional contributions to technical communities worldwide. When a community participant sees an MVP in a technical community, whether in a newsgroup, as a user group host, a conference speaker, or a respondent in forums, that community participant can be confident that the information shared by the MVP will be of the highest caliber and will help every user make the most of the technology.”
Pretty neat huh!
So what does it mean for The New Paperclip? More great tips and tricks for Office 2007, and soon Office 2010!
