Congrats and thanks Steve for all you do! You are definitely the top MVP in the SQL Server world in my mind. I really like the fact that you don't just concentrate on SQL Server stuff in your writings. You challenge us to take ownership of improving ourselves, step outside our comfort zones, be open to new ideas, and cover areas outside of SQL Server. You also are "human" in that you share failures, make typos ,
talk about family, life outside of work, etc.
I have met other Microsoft MVPs who seem to be much more motivated by "the badge" than actually helping others. I often think to myself: "No way I'd put them in the same boat as Steve "Hawaiian Shirt" Jones!"
