The local rumor mill here in Boulder County Colorado suggests a big-daddy Web company is moving to the area per the recent hush-hush sale of the old StorageTek facility that Sun Microsystems acquired in 2005. With IT infrastructure and storage strategically important in an era of hosted Web 2.0 applications, perhaps rumors will live up to local gossip and see Google moving in. Others are speculating that if the Microhoo thing goes through, someone should have use for all those Sun boxes hidden inside the large facility shown below. Either or neither, this is good news for Boulder.

Rumors being rumors, what a bummer update folks! ConocoPhillips is moving in. Oh well, that new neon Google sign on Pearl St off 28th near KBCO is cool, and a markup nonetheless beyond the old @Last Software pedestrian mall address.
...At least the new owner of the old S-Tek facility is green. Green House Data might be set up nicely with their 90-mile proximity.
