The Web titans arrive in Seattle

Todd Bishop at the Seattle PI writes about the branch offices Yahoo and Google have opened in Seattle. Some excerpts:
Yahoo's plan to put a large engineering outpost in Bellevue -- down the road from Google's Kirkland branch and Microsoft's Redmond campus -- means that all three giants of Internet search and Web services will have large offices in the region.

Added to other existing players -- such as, RealNetworks, InfoSpace and Adobe's Fremont branch -- they promise to turn the region into more of a center for Web-based technology.
I am quoted in the article with some thoughts on the impact to technology firms in Seattle and computer science at the University of Washington.
