This from MSW today:
"Some of Microsoft’s most enthusiastic supporters in the technical community are not Microsoft employees at all.
These fans of Microsoft tend to be active in user groups and technical communities, speak at conferences or instructional gatherings, keep blogs or discussion boards on their particular specialty Microsoft technologies, or otherwise communicate their experiences and learnings to other technology users. They advocate for Microsoft among customers and users and, in reversal, advocate to Microsoft on behalf of customers and users."
The CRM MVPs are one of the most engaged, knowledgeable, and passionate technical resources out there. The fastest way to talk to the CRM MVPs is to visit the CRM Forums.
