Demographic info[edit]

Would it make sense to use tables to display some of the demographic information instead of paragraphs? Specifically, replacing:

The racial makeup of the city was 79.26% White, 1.52% African American, 0.45% Native American, 13.02% Asian, 0.18% Pacific Islander, 2.46% from other races, and 3.11% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 5.61% of the population.

With:

Race  % of Population
White 79.26%
Asian 13.02%
Two or more races 3.11%
Other races 2.46%
African American 1.52%
Native American 0.45%
Pacific Islander 0.18%

This could also be done for types of households, population breakdown by age, et cetera. What do you think? JenKilmer 02:42, 16 November 2006 (UTC)


Observation: After consulting http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Redmond%2C_Washington&diff=143007591&oldid=142838954, it appears that the later revision was made by an IP address in Concur's IP address space... even without that, it doesn't really belong in that section. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.144.91.30 (talk) 05:36, 19 October 2007 (UTC)

Nintendo Moved?[edit]

I met with Nintendo maybe 6mo ago and they were working on moving out of their Redmond offices. I'm sure there's still some stuff there, but NOA was mostly marketing, and marketing mostly moved to LA and NYC.

This article (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/businesstechnology/2003699107_nintendo09.html) says it was only 80 people, but I'm pretty sure it was most of the org. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Endquote (talkcontribs) 05:17, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Nintendo moved some of it's employees (namely advertising) to Redwood City, CA and New York. The remainder still work at Redmond or North Bend. A new headquarters was unveiled earlier this month next to the original campus. Nin10dude317 (talk) 00:34, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Record high temps[edit]

In the summer of 2009 (my first summer here) we reached a high temp of 105-107 degrees Fahrenheit during a rather sever heat wave, however the climate section of this article claims a record high of 96 degrees in 1994. Can anybody find a verifiable source for the high temp of the 2009 heat wave so we can update this section?

Grow up[edit]

86.44.138.195, please refrain from further vandalism.

I don't see this unsigned request in the edit history, but it refers to vandalism on 2009 December 23, which was cleaned up the same day. (I was curious and dug back in the article's history. I'm recording the results here in case anyone else is curious.) — Steve98052 (talk) 02:17, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
