Last Tuesday I started my day as I occasionally do - checking the spam facility for my work email account. I found a quarantined message from one "firstname.lastname@example.org". It turned out to be a "Welcome to the vExpert 2011 Program" email message!
I compare the vExpert program to Microsoft's MVP program (but way cooler, of course). It's VMware's way of recognizing those that contributed to the VMware, virtualization and cloud computing communities. Thanks VMware for the recognition!
Oh, and John's emails will no longer get stuck by my spam filter(!).
