In an apparent double-take, Google has announced its intentions to locate a
new major-hub in Research Triangle Park, on Friday. In a press release sent
to local Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill media on Friday, Google announced
their intent to build a new 50,000 square foot complex on Meridian Parkway.
Raleigh Mayor Meeker commented, "Research Triangle Park is the best place
for any technology firm to relocate. Google is making the right decision
here, and I believe the Triangle will be the perfect match." Research
Triangle Park has been a haven of technology start-ups like Red Hat, due in
part to its proximity to major colleges N.C. State, Duke, and UNC.
The press release also mentioned that the growing company would be looking
to hire anywhere from 80-140 employees to help staff the new complex. While
applications have yet to go out, the article explicitly mentioned the need
to hire naive Trilug members who don't recognize this is an April Fools
