I meant it was "done" in the sense that it used to be a working class neighborhood where artists lived/worked, which is precisely whey they painted over Five Pointz and turned it into luxury condos.

I can't think of anything more inconsequential to my existence than this decision

Advanced Auto Parts moved their HQ down here from VA. Also IBM recognize here as the HQ2.

Apple avoids RTP because IBM is expanding here. The deal with Red Hat is still pending and NC Chamber of Commerce may need a whole year to absorb it. After all, this is the biggest acquisition in IBM history and the 3rd in US IT history. This will forever change the cloud business worldwide. If Jim Whitehurst becomes the next CEO of IBM, it's possible for them to move the HQ down here from New York.

Honeywell already announced to move the HQ down to Charlotte. So we probably have nothing to regret.

apple avoided rtp because they want to be closer to chipmakers in austin and because they don't want to do deal with the same gov that put in bathroom restrictions

I'm not sure anyone at Apple gives two fucks about anything that has happened at or around IBM in almost two decades.

That'd be like Amazon caring about malt shakes at the local drug store.

Well, Cook learnt at IBM for a decade before he joined Apple.

Considering chipmakers like AMD and Qualcomm all have branches in Austin, getting close to them is a good choice. And Cook doesn't like HB2 for sure.

^^ Yeah. They probably don't give a fuck to IBM. But you should at least give respect to your older player in the field.

Jobs in 1985. There were numerous quotes comparing IBM to Satan. Never any respect.

It sounds like what happens at Red Hat and the cloud market.
If you are sure you are the No.1 now, you certainly want to take a rest from moving forward, and you prevent others catching up with you from behind. That's human nature.

Yeah, I know Amazon has a site there, my alumni work on AWS there. But I dunno about him buying an apartment. That's almost nothing to an almost-trillionaire.
