My boss at Microsoft*, David, recently posted a link to the Microsoft stories site. Within a slick selection of features, profiles, and news, one headline caught my eye: 88 acres – how Microsoft quietly built the city of the future.

Writing about the management of their originally 88 acre, now 500 acre, campus; the feature looks at how digital technology is enabling new efficiencies in the running of the 125 building campus. The technology used, efficiencies gained, and the resulting environmental and financial benefits are incredible.

*Full disclosure: As the statement indicates, I do a little bit of work for Microsoft.
