Top of the Washington Monument (left), Excel 2013 Power Pivot Chart (Right)

imageMany of you guessed correctly in the comments on Friday, but just to make sure, yes, that was the Washington Monument.

My dad is managing the monument’s restoration project down in DC, which afford him all kinds of neat photo ops like that.

I love the picture for the whole “tip of the spear” vibe.  Which is where we all live these days, in the vanguard of Power Pivot adoption.

One of my friends and former colleagues on the Power Pivot team, Sasha Juric, is quite the creative type, and couldn’t resist “modeling” the picture in Excel 2013.

If you’d like to grab the workbook he used, it’s grabbable here.
