...will have up to 1,000 employees, people who had been briefed on the plan said Monday night. The announcement is set to be made Tuesday morning by Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm at a news conference at the state Capitol in Lansing. Google is expected to open the center in downtown Ann Arbor, the hometown of the University of Michigan, where Larry Page, one of Google’s founders, earned his undergraduate degree in engineering.

Interesting... I wonder where downtown they're going to put it. (That's about five minutes from me)

Big front page article in the Detroit Free Press this morning - apparently it's the entire AdWords operation that's coming here? So when I have a problem, I can just go beat on the door now.

M Go Blue!

I *knew* there was a reason I went into this SEM work about eight years ago.

Who knew *my English degree* from M would mesh so well with *Larry's engineering degree* from M.

So much made of Standford, when all along, it was really those four years in A2 -- for both of us!

Again, M Go Blue!

Gack. Apparently when you type in the words Google and Ann Arbor into Google Search, the first thing that comes up is a local listing for *MY* company. I've been fielding calls all day from people looking for jobs or to contact Google. A headhunter just now called looking to offer her services to Google. How weird is *that*?

Nice. Now I can go kick down their door and complain about adwords.
