Google is proposing to pay $690,000 per year to rent two-thirds of Slater School for employee child care. The total is 38% more than the district had hoped for, leaves a portion of the school open for a public preschool, and allows the public to continue using the park.

It's official. Google is taking over. In addition to Slater, the company is renting space at Theuerkauf Elementary, a million square feet at Moffett Field, and is in talks to enter into a long-term lease with the city at the Charleston East hotel site. This is not to mention to the space on the city light poles for its wireless network. Really the only public space left for it to expand it to is the Centennial Plaza train station building. Not sure what they would do with it, but it certainly wouldn't be the first time the company bailed a local government agency out of past mistakes.

I don't understand why Google can't just put all those kids to work. How much thinking does it take to be an Adwords temp anyway?
