Updated 8/22/11: – Please be sure to SIGN UP at the desk outside the solutions exchange.  Many people are not aware you need to sign up to meet 1:1 with the VMworld knowledge Experts

This is a humbling thing for me to see, it truly is.  Never before have I been put in a position of such importance at such a large event.  I am truly thankful, happy, but mostly humbled to be listed with people the likes of Kit Colbert, Mike DiPetrillo, Duncan Epping, and so many others this year.  I am actually at a loss for words to be honest.  Below are the details of the 2011 Knowledge Expert 1:1.  The program is completely new to me, but I am sure the others on this list are very familiar with it.  An excerpt from the site is below that is the basic description and you can get more information from the VMworld site links here in the post.
