From the NY Times: Google to Put a Research Center in Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 10 — Google plans to build an office and research center here that 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.

Should make for some interesting opportunities for the town and U of M.
