Thats a pretty network diagram…

http://www.microsoft.com/uk/technet/designit/default.mspxWe were having a coffee with the Audience marketing guys a while ago, and we were talking about how we could contribute to a charity in some way.  Microsoft in the UK are sponsors of several charities, but we wanted to bring this to smaller charities in the UK that may not have that level of budget for advertising or funding.  Well this coffee idea has really evolved into a 2 threaded design competition called Desigh IT.

You can design a piece of art that looks like a piece of IT infrastructure (only pretty), well the winners of one part of the competition get their art exhibited in a London art gallery, and the  winner of the Design IT for charity part gets their infrastructure design implemented for the charity of their choice.

Its actally a really nice idea to get your doodles into functional specifications.  Have a look here for the competition details and prizes….
