I've just been awarded the Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award for Visual C#! What does that mean? From the site:

What is the Microsoft MVP Award?
The Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award is an annual award given to outstanding members of Microsoft's technical communities based on contributions made during the previous 12 months to offline and online Microsoft-related technical communities.

How does Microsoft select its MVPs?
Of 100 million technical community participants worldwide, about 4,000 are MVPs. Outstanding technical community members are nominated by their peers, Microsoft employees, and MVPs. Each year a panel of Microsoft employees reviews the contributions of each nominee for quality, quantity, and level of impact on the technical community. Today's MVPs reflect Microsoft's global customer base and breadth of technologies.

I believe I am the 3rd MVP in Nebraska now. It's a great honor - many thanks to Microsoft and the C# team for recognizing my competence and contributions to the community.

Does anyone know how Sparks really work? If I wanted to create a spark for the Lincoln .NET Users Group, do I just publicly post things with the those keywords?
