Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away… oh hang on .. wrong movie.
Once upon a time there was a guy who wasn’t an MVP but who blogged. I’ll call him… say.. oh… we’ll call him Rory. And I remember at that time that Microsoft in their usual way hadn’t quite communicated that the MVP summit wasn’t “just” a MVP summit but that they had invited some people like… Regional Directors and special people like… well “Rory” type people like… Rory. In the typical MVP/blogosphere fashion this caused a “how come I wasn’t invited” blogging event and in hindsight, was a mountain out of a molehill. This summit they’ve made sure that we all know that MVPs, Regional Developers and “Rory types” will be there which is a good thing.
And for the record Rory.. Grey, Grandaddy of the SBS MVPs pinged me today and said “You have the email address for that channel 9 video guy, Rory? He should be at our party to video“.
Well I think he should also be at our family get together so I can give him a hug and apologize for being a bit rude during the last MVP summit since I too wasn’t too sure that non MVPs should have been there but in hindsight, I too made a mountain out of a molehill.
.. and if Rory’s not interested in the SBS get together… which is just our SBS friends and family group to make a Channel 9 video out of… there’s Supportspace who’s putting on a shindig along with Palermo.
Just rub it in guys how much I’ll be back here dealing with the DST fallout while you guys are in Seattle having a fun time….
So Grey…. emailing is sooooo old fashioned… these days we invite people via blog linking 🙂
P.S. Congrats on homeownership. The tax deductions are pretty kewl, huh!
