“The bad news is that it’ll still crash due to bad drivers.”
I was reading Channel 9′s forum and saw someone post that quote and thought it was funny.
So, what are we talking about? Microsoft just got a contract with Formula 1 to provide electronic control units.
I remember arguing with other employees about how important sponsoring racing is.
Racing drives HUGE sales around the world. NASCAR, for instance, can make or break a brand.
Plus, they throw cool parties at the sponsor tents where you can bring your best clients and hit them up for big contracts.
In other Microsoft news it is looking for more space. In Redmond they are working on several new buildings. Microsoft’s research division is building a new building. Kevin Schofield recently told me about how they are doing that. Architects are working with the employees to build the “ultimate” workspace.
What caught my ear? They have removable walls. If workers decide they need a different space layout they’ll be able to pull the walls down and move them around. Someone should go over and get video of that when the time comes.
