Google Fremont

Posted by Kim Peterson at 1:58 PM

Google moves its sales office 1.9 miles and the media is there to cover it. I'm guilty as well, with this short story in today's paper. It's still a little surprising to me how much attention this company (and perhaps Apple Computer) gets for moves that, with any other company, the media would nary blink an eye at.

Chalk it up to the Google financial phenomenon, its potential threat to established tech giants like Microsoft, and the company's own policies of keeping facts close to its vest. Google is much more open about the operations at its sales office than at its Kirkland engineering site, which it opened in November of 2004. The Kirkland office, by the way, is up to 150 people now, compared with 10 when it opened.
