Pablo asks,

Is this the sort of range of discussions that would be included on something like Channel 9?

... and I decided that I should talk a little bit more about what goes on at an MVP summit, especially since I'm a bit more coherant today than I was last night.

In the feedback session that I led (facilitated (MC'ed (hogged the mike in))), I was primarily concerned with getting the MVP's opinion on how questions like:

  • What is the worst thing about being an MVP?
  • How could Microsoft support you better?

We also spent a fair amount of time showing the MVPs what's coming up in Whidbey and getting their comments. Because we're close to Whidbey being released, most of the information that we discussed is public, but we also share some information that is under NDA.

Both useful activities, but hardly interchangeable.
