A good friend of mine from Perth got awarded MVP status this past week. Mitch Wheat runs the .Net User Group over there, and does a terrific job. He does a lot for the community, and is incredibly smart. I'm really pleased for him.
PS: There are a bunch of other new MVPs this October as well (plus I got rewarded) - I'm just mentioning Mitch because he's a good friend and I'm so pleased for him!
