Damir, asked questions ranging from the current financial challenges to how Steve manages his daily “email flood”, which led to several laughs in the audience.

There used to be times when RDs could not be MVPs. But as requests raised for the freebies that MVPs got but RDs did not, MS did one of their major community mistakes. Anyway.
While Damir may be an MVP, from a Microsoft perspective he first and foremost is one of the only four German Microsoft Regional Directors. Which is what got him to interview Steve in Cologne. End of story.
