An Outlook meeting request with driving directions

I am most impressed by one of my favourite colleagues at Microsoft Peter Ulm – he just sent me a meeting request direct in Outlook with embedded driving directions:

Hi all,

I've picked this day as it appears to be the free-est and it is also a week after the company meeting so we should have better insight into FY07 plans from a corp perspective. It is not expected that all of you need to be involved for all of the day. I will build the agenda topics timing around your availability so pls let me know if there are times when you definitely CANNOT make it through this day.

More info etc to follow.
