    You should make a Photosynth of the entire campus, and link videos for all the locations into the synth.  Smiley

     

    Well, all the ideas you proposed sound good to me.  I'd also like to see me on the Microsoft Campus, that'd be the best.  Wink

    Short answer ... EVERYTHING!

     

    I agree with all of the above.  Show us day-in-the-life stuff.  What do typical offices look like?  What do the cafeterias look like?  Show us DevDiv, Visual Studio, Research, etc.  Show us around the campus (how about a remake of the Bill Hill tour around the grounds -- sadly without Bill).  Show us how software builds get done, how groups work together, testers at work.  Show us how Softies work and play on an average day...

    Candy Mountain

    Is that where the animals from George Orwell's Animal Farm went when they died? Or was that Sugar Candy Mountain?

    I want to see Giant Clippy statue. If not exist, make one. Tongue Out

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.
