The following letter is the reply I just got back from Microsoft.  I originally
mailed them with the intention of either getting them to install the client on
all their machines, or creating an organized Bovine effort.  I find it
interesting that a project like this got tossed to Corporate Marketing, not MIS.
 At least it's an answer, which is a start.

The letter was really nice and fluffy, which is probably why I got a response
back.  The only 2 important people I emailed so far were The Gatus of
Bor..Microsoft and Lou Gerstner of IBM.  If anyone can think of any other
CEO-type folks who might be interested, let me know.

We have received and thoroughly reviewed your proposal for corporate
sponsorship.   We appreciate that you took the time to share with Microsoft
your ideas on a subject that is important to you and to many others.
Although this looks like a very interesting proposal, it does not fit
Microsoft's current objectives for event marketing and promotions at this
time.  Your proposal will be evaluated against our current objectives and if
there is any interest we will contact you.

Thank you for your interest in Microsoft, and please keep us informed of any
future opportunities that may arise.

Best Regards,

Terry H. Heald
Corporate Marketing
