Balmer not moving, plans to grow old and die in Seattle

The local recipients community is relieved, Balmer says he is staying in Seattle. This seems a bit odd, given that he is buying a  a professional basketball franchise in LA.  Even for an uber wealthy guy, one wonders how often he wants to take the family Lear on a 3 hour trip to watch his team?  Or maybe he plans on setting up a virtual reality holodeck in Medina.

John Cook has  written about Seattle’s hungry,the region’s tech, startup and philanthropic organizations hoping for largess from Msoft’s former leader.  What role model will the man pick .. zillionaire spend thrift Paul Allan?  Gates grand philanthropy?  Or maybe he will buy the UW.
