Microsoft Sign - Redmond

This is part of a Microsoft Research study about how we can get regular people to do simple tasks at specific locations. This offer is valid only for people who have received an offer directly from @MicrosoftStudy on Twitter.

For this task, we want you to take a picture of the "M" in the Microsoft sign at the southeast corner of NE 40th St & 156th Ave NE in Redmond, WA, shown on the map at the bottom of this page. You should take a close-up, full frame picture (no cropping) like the last picture below, not one from farther away.

Tweet your picture to us by putting @MicrosoftStudy in a tweet with your photo. We will check the picture to make sure it's right and also check the picture's embedded time stamp to make sure it's recent. If everything is OK, and if we've received your picture by the deadline we gave, we will email an Amazon gift code with the amount we offered to an email address you specify. You can apply the code to a future purchase from
