    We are looking at doing a campus tour series but we want to know what YOU want to see.  Here are some ideas:  

     

     

    • Bill Gates first office
    • The very first Microsoft building
    • The ship room for Office 2010
    • The building where Clippy was created
    • The fountain that turns green every St.  Patrick‚Äôs Day
    • A tour of MS Archives
    • Charles Torre's Office

    Let me know so we can show it to you!

    The stores, the cafeterias, starbucks vending machines, Bill Gates' old/Steven Sinofsky's/Ballmer's parking spots, Windows build lab

  • spivonious

    The standard "new employee" workspace.

  • exoteric

    I really want to see a tour of an Azure datacenter but other than that (there's not one near the campus is there?): Microsoft archives, audio hardware compliance test labs and it would also be fun to peek inside Charle's office. Smiley

    For starters...

     

    the corporate Board Room

     

    Ballmer's current office

     

    the largest cube farm on campus - office cubes that is

     

    the room with the MOST powerful computing machine on campus

     

    the general physical access security on campus

     

    the niner facilities in general

     

    an employee's only Friday night muscle car collection in the parking lot

    The dude/dudette who can merge my Live Id's.

    You should show the product walk of fame. Especially the Bob tile.

    Oh heck I can do that for you. Will photos do?

  • dahat

    • Lake Bill
    • Visitor Center
    • Poophenge
    • And most importantly... a demonstration of the sheer size of the place

    Though +1 for the product walk, such a trip down memory lane.

    I've always wondered how you can get to become an artist that can make just any old ...crap... and get people to pay huge amounts of money for it.

  • blowdart

    ScottGu's wardrobe of red poloshirts. It must exist, right?
