This afternoon I got a chance to have lunch with Tobin Titus, who moved from Charlotte up here to Redmond about 6 months ago to join the IIS team. It was great fun, and we got the chance to talk about many things.
Afterwards he dropped me off at the Patterns and Practices group’s building. Alan Ridlehoover and I have been chatting, and he met me there and gave me a whirlwind tour of the space. In short, it is very cool, and everything Brian Button said it was (though they said that anything else Brian might have said was a lie ;) ). They have neat open workspaces that are pretty configurable, with floor to ceiling whiteboards/glass, and some offices on the perimeter. I’m glad I stopped over – it was well worth the shuttle ride.
Finally, this evening I got up on Flickr pictures I’ve been taking from the last week. You can see them here.
