I got home last night to find a message on my phone trying to arrange an interview for Oracle Magazine about being “Oracle ACE of the Year”. Needless to say this was a bit of a shock, since it was the first thing I’d heard about it.
It seems Oracle Magazine had already contacted me about it, but either my spam filter had deleted the message, or I deleted it without reading it.
Anyway, I did the interview later that night and I’ve got to have a photo taken for the magazine. The profile and photo will be in the November/December issue of Oracle Magazine.
This year has been totally mad. First I get nominated as an ACE, then this. It’s all a bit scary and humbling.
This award went to Mark Rittman last year, so I expect him to pass on the sash and tiara in November. I’ll try not to do a Gwyneth Paltrow.
