Not many people know that Microsoft has a very nice visitor’s center on their Redmond campus. The best description I can come up with to describe it is: a mix between a hands-on science museum and an Apple store. It even has a gift shop. If you are into web technologies as I am, a drive out to the Microsoft campus and visitor’s center is a must.

There is the requisite “History of Microsoft” (spoken in deep voice) display with old NT OS manuals and boxes of DOS discs. The rest of the visitor’s center is very interactive. We did everything from making our own movie, to sending out virtual ecards, to playing tennis and mapping locations on a “Minority Report” computer monitor. You can stay all day and play every Xbox game if you so desire.

Last but not least, climb atop the Microsoft sign and take the picture that will confirm you into permanent geek-hood. Employees on campus will be happy to take the picture for you. They understand we are all <geek>inside</geek>.
