Google promised to spill the beans by year's end:
And though the above two links only show this for Raleigh and Atlanta, I'll assume the same promise was made to all the potential new cities.
Is there any correlation between how they posted the job offering and which cities they have announced in?
Or maybe old posting were plan A and new are plan B?
If I was a gambling type, I'd wager the cities Google is posting for "local" candidates are the winners and the "telecommuter" position cities are the losers. Nice to see that Google's momentum in the ISP market not only isn't slowing down, but in fact is accelerating.
maybe Google is finding some other value in the deal, Hopefully not Comcast like access to more eyeballs.
Let me tell you about extra value... Who isn't sick of Google not being able to do real time deep packet inspection on all our layer 7 content? I'm tired of getting metro-sexual fashion ads showing guys in tight jeans, when all I really care about is monster trucks and WWF wrestling events. Maybe Google will be able to get the hint finally once they have access to my entire data stream. Did you hear that Google-bots, BIG TRUCKS!?!!
