Peter Jackson in Seattle and Microsoft last week?

Todd Bishop from Seattle PI newspaper speculates whether Wellington filmmaker Peter Jackson was in Seattle and Microsoft last week… at the same time a certain Wellington blogger was in town.

“Filmmaker Peter Jackson, best known as the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy’s director, was spotted in Seattle last week, touring the Museum of Flight near Boeing Field. See today’s Insider column for details. As the column notes, there’s a lingering question: Was he also at Microsoft working out details on the “Halo” movie that he’s producing? No word on that from the company.”

Two Wellingtonians in Seattle and Redmond in the same week? It’s got to be more than coincidence. Admittedly one of them is slightly more famous and richer… and slimmer.
