Justin: Google's coming to Ann Arbor
July 11, 2006
In about five weeks, my son, Justin, will have his diploma in information technology from the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). It's one of the outstanding tech schools in the world.
Given Michigan's current political and economic climate, he hasn't had much incentive to move back home, other than his great parents and a bunch of friends. Opportunity seemed to exist elsewhere.
Could that be changing?
Google's Adwords headquarters is coming to Michigan, more specifically Ann Arbor. They expect to hire 1,000 people. That's really good news. I hope it's a harbinger of things to come for our state.
I wonder how much our state had to give away to get them to locate here.
