“Microsoft execs plan to share information on its next version of Office and other future products with its ‘volunteer army.'”
“Early next month, Microsoft is set to share its vision for its next-generation Office, Windows, database and other products with hundreds of its Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs).
MVPs are the independent technology buffs who are recognized experts in one or more Microsoft technologies. They complement Microsoft executives, product managers and developers in tasks ranging from answering online forum questions, to assisting Microsoft at trade shows and other events. The MVP program is eleven years old.”
