Yesterday evening, I received the following e-mail:
Dear Maarten Balliauw,
Congratulations! We are pleased to present you with the 2009 Microsoft® MVP Award! This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in ASP/ASP.NET technical communities during the past year.

Translated in short: I’m now officially an MVP ASP.NET! I am really honored to be recognized as an MVP. Thank you for the nomination!
The past year has been quite fun, doing lots of blog posts, a book on ASP.NET MVC, various speaking sessions at VISUG, DevDays, PHP Conference, … Guess now I’m obligated to stay active in community :-) The next two weeks will be community less however, since I’m off on a vacation. See/write/… you in a week or two!
