Is Google Coming to Raleigh, NC?

November 29th, 2005 Tony Leave a comment Go to comments

Last week Andy Beal reported on a rumor/story that Google was looking to establish an office in RTP. Andy speculates that Google could be looking to acquire Scot Wingo’s successful ChannelAdvisor. Arrgghh! Maybe I should have taken Scot’s offer to come in for a interview last year. :)

Google in RaleighThe story continued when a local Raleigh blogger reported that Google had a jet parked at RDU for several days last week. Suffering from post Thanksgiving lack of motivation yesterday I called the largest private hangar at RDU, posed as a reporter and asked about the jet. She had no idea what I was talking about. So in continuing with my theme of avoiding the code I needed to be writing I spoke with that local blogger yesterday and he confirmed that the jet was indeed from Google and was parked at Raleigh International but he didn’t know if it was still here. (I seriously considered driving over to find out for myself and to wrap up the day with only 15 minutes of meaningful work).

Maybe Google will attempt to set up shop in Raleigh and keep it a big secret like they have done in Georgia. Or maybe they are just looking for a Raleigh parking lot to setup one of their new mobile data centers. Hey Larry and Sergey, I have a big parking lot here on Six Forks road and I’ll even run you some ethernet down from my office. :)

    I’m still digging! ;-)

    Let me know if you come up with anything.

    PS. Always good to find a local blogger and sub to their RSS!
