    I just looked arround on bing maps at the microsoft campus. I knew it was huge but Bing really puts it in perspective.

     

    If you work at microsoft, where do you work and what buildings do you often visit?

    Microsoft Campus

     

    It might also help put thing here on C9 in perspective.

    It's all just a facade. Everything Microsoft makes is done by 2 guys in a basement in Virginia shackled to the waterpipes with 1 PM upstairs. Super sekret...

    Used to be in 18, then 24, now 42 (working on http://orchardproject.net).  Usually have lunch between 42/43, but sometimes go over to 40/41 or the Commons.  I drive past Nintendo every day to get to work.  The offices in Bellevue are niiiiice.  Smiley
