When the PDC organizing team was looking for volunteers as escorts for the MS Home tour, I had to be the nice guy and do them a favor! But really I jumped up to the opportunity in excitement as I wanted to see MS Home myself since I’ve been hearing great things about it ever since I joined Microsoft 3 years ago.
BTW the tour this week is exclusive for PDC conference attendees. If you’re here for PDC (first time ever on Microsoft campus), don’t miss this opportunity, so go ahead and add a tour of the Microsoft Home to your PDC10 schedule. There are different slots available for the home tour and there are other tours available to Envisioning Lab & HPC lab as well. Check out the details here : http://www.microsoftpdc.com/WhatsHappening/Microsoft-Tours-Exclusively-for-PDC-Attendees. I’ll be the escort for the 4PM tour on Thurs, Oct 28.
You can read and see more about the MS Home here: http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/presskits/mshome/default.aspx. Here is a brief blurb about the home.
Built as a full-scale model home in the company’s Executive Briefing Center, the Home is used to explore practical applications of cutting-edge technical trends, and exhibit futuristic prototype technologies to a variety of industry and government leaders, partners and customers.
I wish I could tweet or blog more about the tour but unfortunately the entire tour is under NDA (Non Disclosure Agreement).
