Major Nelson receives 2007 Readers Choice’ Person of the Year Award


Chance’s are if you’ve been around the Xbox world for any length of time, you’ve heard of this guy at Microsoft named Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson. Largely from his blog where he used to post random happens of his interest, but now its mainly a Xbox Live Marketplace one stop shop of MS points horror for all of our wallets (except for demo’s, of course). As the Xbox Live Director of Programming ( So, what does that title mean again?), he’s accentually become the face of Xbox as far as the Xbox community is concerned outside of the higher up executives.

Nevertheless, after all of the things that Major Nelson has and is still doing at Microsoft or for the Xbox community, he’s been recognized at GameDaily for the 2007 Readers Choice’ Person of the Year Award winner. Why is this important? Simply, it was voted on by the community. Voting by a committee is one thing, but to be voted for by that of which you can not truly influence( if Twitter doesn’t count) is an entirely other magnificent show of support.

Now, it’s time for TriXie to get her due some how. As great as Major is, she’s definitely deserving of such an honor as well.

  2. I don’t think I’ll go there Geo. Bad things will happen. End of the world stuff for sure.

  3. Go Major!

  4. Everyone always misspells his name, it’s Larry Hryb, not Hyrb.

  5. Intangible: I’m sorry, it’s fixed. That kind of stuff irks me too.
