Sorry, one last post for the night. This was too cool to pass up.
The Macintosh BU at Microsoft, which was formed after the 1997 Apple/Microsoft alliance, just celebrated their 10th anniversary. Apparently, what greeted them in the morning was gorgeous pixel art:
Of course, it turned out to not be pixel art per-se, but actually 1336 carefully pasted sticky notes on the windows.
I have to hand it to Microsoft, that’s 100% pure engineering culture right there. Glorious. I tip my hat to the team.
The full article about how they designed the sticky note art in Excel and then finished their work is here, on the Mac Mojo blog.
