PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM PUTS THE HOUSE THAT BILL BUILT UP ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB

By CBR Staff Writer

For those that find endless fascination and delight in the lifestyles of the rich and famous (yawn), steer your browsers to http://www.morsepr.com/MMdocs/Bill.html to preview the house that Windows95 has not yet built. Seattle, Washington-based public relations firm MorseMcFadden Communications dispatched a boat onto Lake Washington, upon whose shores Microsoft Corp chairman Bill Gates is constructing his $50m mansion, not far from Microsoft Corp’s Redmond campus, and posted its findings on the Web. The site features photographs of the 40,000 square foot abode, as well as bits of trivia. The mansion reportedly includes an L-shaped swimming pool with music piped in underwater, a 20-vehicle garage, a theatre seating several dozen people, and a dining room for several hundred guests. No, it’s not true that the house has only 95 windows, though we will soon be conducting a contest to determine how many windows it really does have, promised MorseMcFadden. Not a bad return for your $89 Windows95 upgrade.
