Microsoft MVPs and the Community (by John Koziol)

Great post John and a reminder as to how the MVP program first got started and why it succeeds...

I think your one statement makes a very detailed point:
"can anyone point to another industry where craftsmen (and women) routinely help folks who are or could be potential competitors? "

If nothing else, software has proven time and time again that people all over the world can have the similar ideas at the same time and not be stealing from each other.

In the area of software, provided there are no lawyers involved, it truly can be the market that decides if an idea has legs or not.

The MVP program (and the communities that sprout out around it) allows everyone to learn the same tips and tricks that everyone uses. It benefits everyone.
