A bit of Microsoft historical past has gone lacking. The massive plaque that marked the first official residence of Microsoft in Albuquerque, N.M., was just lately stolen, in response to a report out of the metropolis.
KRQE-TV reports that the plaque was installed back in 2006 at the website of the firm’s first workplaces, close to the Albuquerque fairgrounds. It just lately disappeared, leaving an empty rock.
Police are hoping that publicizing the theft helps to trace down the thief.
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen tells the station in an e mail, “I’ve acquired nice reminiscences of working lengthy hours in that workplace, and Invoice and I had been pleased it was there as a method to thank the metropolis of Albuquerque for its position in beginning Microsoft. I can’t think about why somebody would need to steal it. If it doesn’t flip up, I’ll be sure that it will get changed and put in in a safer trend.”
