The Embarcadero MVP Program
An official landing page with links to everyone's pages etc, as well as official logos, and other materials are in the works, but I wanted to take this opportunity to preview the program if you will, just like we're starting off the XE3 World Tour as preview events.
It brings me great pleasure to announce this program, and to give you the list of the current MVPs. Some of them have already blogged and/or tweeted. More people are in the queue for sure, and I'm hereby asking anyone that wants to, to send me name and contact information for anyone that you believe should be an MVP. An MVP is someone who is a well known advocate in the community, and does great stuff for everyone's benefit.
Without further ado, here is the current list of MVPs ordered by country:
Marcos Antonio Moreira
Newton Michel de Oliveira
Germán Estévez Ruiz
Luis Alfonso Rey
Luis Felipe González Torres
Thanks again to all these great folks, and everyone else for their support. As I said, please remember, this is not an exhaustive list by any means, but I think it's a great start for the program. More names will be added over time, and assets to recognize these great folks will be forthcoming.

I would like to suggest inclusion of all the long-time third-party developers still committed to writing, producing, and supporting components for Delphi, such as Bruno et al at TMS, the guys at DevEx, and many others. If it weren't for their commitment to Delphi in the face of one marketing misstep after another by Borland/Inprise/CodeGear Management, there might not be any value to Delphi at all today.

I'd nominate Rodrigo Ruz of Chile (http://theroadtodelphi.wordpress.com). He provides some of the meatiest Delphi code examples out there and covers a variety of relevant topics very methodically and extensively. His RAD Studio syntax highlighting theme management utility is great.

For the states I would suggest to add a certain Nick Hodges who's writing about and still doing great things for the Delphi comunity.
For Italy I would suggest to add Marco Breveglieri who is very active in the peergroups.
