Green Initiatives Touch MCP Program
We told you about the Microsoft Learning Group's effort to green up its MCP program. In green-speak, it meant that Microsoft would be saving some trees -- and, in a timely manner, money -- making wallet cards, certificates, books and other odd, assorted benefits available online. Microsoft has finally cut bait, so to speak, and put certificates online. The group does offer the option to get a printed, official certificate mailed to you, for a nominal shipping and handling fee (which, I guess in green-speak, could be called a carbon offset).
I suspect most readers won't miss the paper certificates, right? Besides, most of you probably link to your online transcript in most cases, if there's ever a need to prove your MCP-ness.
On a side note: New certificates will bear Ballmer's, not Gates', signature. Hmmm ... it's truly a changing of the guard at Microsoft.
