It's true -- Google is opening a development office in Kirkland. In fact, we are moving tonight into our new offices. So far there has been a small group of us working in some temporary offices.

Stay tuned for more details! We are planning an open house party so that Seattle knows we are here. I don't think we can invite thousands of people like Scoble is suggesting -- they just wouldn't fit. Unfortunately I won't be around for the party because I'm going to be out of town on a photography trip. I'm really disappointed I'm going to miss it.
