  1. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in and around Microsoft’s campus so I really enjoyed reading this story.

    I’m currently working for M80 (a social media marketing firm hired by Microsoft) on a Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 advertising campaign that is at the pinnacle of these fun facts! The Allure Bays Corp. microsite (http://www.allurebays.com) celebrates the rich history of easter eggs in Microsoft products from the fun (the flight simulator in Excel 97) to the odd (Hall of Tortured Souls in Excel 95) and has some great videos. Take a look at the site and feel free to share it or let us know what you think on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
