You know these list from many other areas, the top 100 most influential industy leaders in New Jersey, the top 100 most beautiful couples in Hollywood and so on. But now there is one list that is more interesting for the readers here on DynamicsUser.net - "Microsoft Dynamics Top 100 Influential People 2009" is online.
I found out about this after reading Brandon George's AX Blog today, and especially it surprised me see my own name listed as number 10. Yes you heard right the top 10.
The full top 10 list includes:
If you don't know all the other persons on the list, then lookup the list. There's details about everyone. But being on a list with such "famous" people makes me feel very honored. What made me feel even more honored was actually I don't really know any of the editors of the list (Ashen Ali, Steven Alspberg, Wiraiwan Changhai,Trevor Ishmail, Callum Murray and Harry Patterson), and they are not really the most well known names on the user group. Here is what they wrote about the basic for creating the top 100 list:
I'm not really sure what forums/voting lines they are talking about, but maybe some knows.
The other members of DUG who made it to the list (and that I know) are :
Congratulations to everyone!
I must say that there are people on the list where it really surprises me that they are even on the list. And there are other people that I really think should have made it to the list. Just to mention a few:
But anyway I'm going to keep this website under investigation, they are also writting that the website is really under construction also.
Well it seams like they've just changed their site. It's back again with a new layout.
Thank you. You're right. I wonder what they have been doing. The site was up only two days ago.
Link to the 100 is invalid!
Congratulations making the top 10, Erik. Some of those on the list who you may not know are people who focus on Dynamics GP, several of whom are based in Fargo. I have worked with many over the years. Sadly not too many are based in Asia-Pacific but overall it is a good representation.
Yes Eric, it's clear that somebody is missing from the list, but then again the list was made to be for all the Dynamics products.
And then it needed to be more clear what the criteria's are. How is influence really defined?
