Microsofties vent about 520 traffic

Microsoft programmer Adam Barr blogged about question and answer session the state Department of Transportation held on the Redmond campus yesterday:

At the brown bag today people were getting a bit irate when it was pointed out that even if things go smoothly and voters approve a large “Roads & Transit” tax package this fall, it will probably take 10 years before a new bridge opens (the DOT has a project website if you want more info on it). A couple of people made the comment that this was going to start hurting Microsoft, because people will quit to avoid having such a nightmare commute (although Google has basically the same commute).
