A shared timeline: me and Microsoft

When I say I work in Microsoft Building 1 — I work in Microsoft Building 1. The first ever building on what is now the primary campus. I marked up this photo from 1985 (I was 6) showing the two offices I’ve had in this building.
My first office looked out over Lake Bill, named after Bill Gates.
My second looks out towards the “Executive Briefing Center” which sits between our building and the building the houses the CEO.
I spent my day at the EBC with a huge company everyone knows discussing future business.
 Interesting to see it through those eyes and to stop and reflect on your ability to make an impact.  When I was 6, my future offices were being built.
Microsoft has released some stories about the build out of what is my “campus” and there is another forthcoming I believe.
