For months, there have been rumours about Google coming to Waterloo. In November, Google seed investor David Cheriton donated $25 million to the UW School of Computer Science -- now the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science -- and the behind-the-scenes preparation for that was likely the source of some of the Google scuttlebutt.
But now there's a job posting on Google's site looking for a mobile wireless application developer. "Position based in Waterloo, Canada."
There's just the one posting, and Google just announced it was opening an engineering facility in Pittsburgh, so I don't think we have to prepare for an invasion ... but this should keep the rumour mill alive for a while.
