Making the Top 10 in 2010, & Plans for 2011

image

I’m constantly having to explain to my family that my apparent narcissism is actually part of my job as an evangelist, and the self-promotion is all about connecting with customers and partners, and providing visibility to my company, Axceler, and products (like ControlPoint for administration and Davinci for migration). Even so, it’s great to see that your hard work has not gone unnoticed. My ECM Connection article 11 Strategic Considerations for SharePoint Migration remained in the top 2 downloads for the site for 7 weeks, and was just named to the Top 10 of 2010 for the site. Thanks for reading! You can also view an on-demand recording of this presentation here, or see me in person at an upcoming event. Which brings me to my next point: where am I in 2011? Here’s my current schedule for Winter 2011:
