Google Opens Office in Midwest

Google opens office in Madison Wisconsin

Internet giant Google has opened an office in Madison.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based company announced the creation of a Madison office last spring and officially opened it Wednesday.

Gov. Jim Doyle says the state must continue to attract companies like Google to provide good jobs for its educated work force -- particularly in tough economic times.

Google would not say how many people work in its Madison office, but its lab has workstations for 16. The company has had workers in Wisconsin since last year and moved into its new 5,000-square-foot facility in August.

James Laudon, the head of the Madison office, says it will design hardware and software for Google's data center.
