A while ago Scott Hanselman blogged about Changes in the Microsoft MVP Program - MVPs for Open Source Contributions, which detailed changed to the Microsoft MVP program that would enable Microsoft to award people an MVP solely based on open-source contributions.
Today I am very proud to share with you that I have been awarded the very first open-source based MVP! I have been awarded an MVP in the ASP.NET category, as it is the most appropriate given most of my open-source work has been in web-related technologies.
Just to be clear: there is no pure "open-source MVP" category, instead Microsoft will award MVPs in one of the existing categories, but based on different criteria. However, I feel it is only appropriate to include the OSS moniker in my MVP title, hence I will use ASP.NET OSS MVP to describe my MVP.
