I see a lot of vExpert's flying around...
How does one get recognized to be a vExpert? ... and what the heck is it?
It's an award for contribution to the VMware user community. You can become one with:
1) a blog
2) helping on sites like TE
3) VMUG memberships (or more like being a member of a VMUG committee in your area)
4) helping over on VMware's community forums
Any combination of the above, really. Lately, VMware have eased the requirements for being recognised as a vExpert, hence why you see more people with the award these days.
NSX, NSX, more NSX..
You can also be awarded as one if you work with customers and make sure they are all vSphereriated
Oh, and you can become one as Partner and Employee as well (mainly need a VMware reference though).
My own knowledge base made public:
