Many friends ask me how to be an MVP ?
Well, my reply went something like this :
Participate in the community.
- start a blog
- participate on a mailing list, like the INDC mailing list
- go to a user group
- present at a user group
- contribute to a community dev project such as Project Otak
- do internal presentations at your place of work
- write articles for magazines
- get published online
- write a book
You do these things and you'll be the one;)
