"Q9: How can I become a Microsoft MVP?
A9: Individuals are nominated for the MVP Award by their peers or by Microsoft, based on their contributions during the previous year to offline or online technical communities. Each nominee's contributions are then compared to the other candidates' contributions for the same year to determine who will receive the award.

Nominees are chosen from traditional and emerging community venues, including public forums, newsgroups, third-party Web sites, user groups, event speakers, Web boards, blogs, social media sites, and wikis. Current MVPs reside in more than 90 countries, speak nearly 40 languages, and share their expertise in around 90 Microsoft technologies.

To nominate yourself or someone else, please visit this page."

Development, MS technical advocacy, community training, workshops, etc.  If you have proven that you have contributed to the technical community in any number of ways, your work will be judged against other candidates for the year.  
Oh, an obvious oversight, contribution to sites like EE are a bonus as well  ;)
