Jon Skeet is no longer a Microsoft MVP

by eliasen 3. October 2009 12:40

Hi all

Jon Skeet, who has been a C# MVP since 2003, as I understand it was to have his MVP renewed on October 1’st 2009, but his employer Google advised him not to be renewed, so he had to tell Microsoft to not consider him for renewal. You can see Jons blog entry here.

To be honest, I think it is very petty way Google is thinking.

So to Jon: Great work, keep it up, and hopefully either Google will come around or you will find a better job and get your MVP status back.
