Congratulations to Michael for his ACE Nomination

I am absolutely delighted to post this: on Friday evening I received an email from Oracle's marketing team that Michael Armstrong-Smith (link to Michael's web site, link to Michael's blog) had been nominated to receive the Oracle ACE award for his substantial and excellent contributions to Discoverer in the Oracle technical community.

His profile should be added shortly to the Oracle ACE page (link).

Here's just a little bit about Michael's Discoverer contributions:
- In 2000 he wrote the original Discoverer Handbook, and in 2006 the updated Oracle Discoverer 10g Handbook was released by Oracle Press. The first book achieved a top 200 rank among all books on Amazon.com, while his second book has already reached the top 5000 in less than two weeks of its release.
- He is a member of different Oracle user groups like the IOUG, OAUG, ODTUG
- Between Metalink and OTN Forums he has answered over 600 posts and is one of the most prolific and knowledgable person out there.
- And he is a frequent presenter at different Oracle events and user group meets.

Once again, congratulations to Michael!
