I was reading a piece of news today on how the company Facebook was planning to open up an office here in Vancouver. For the most part it seems like they are trying to attract software engineers. What was interesting about this news to me is that the office is supposed to be temporary only. Therefore, this would naturally make me wonder if this is simply a way for the company to first attract say local talent with the full intent to then relocate them all down south to the US.
I suppose it all depends on what side of the fence you are at to take this as a positive or negative news. I am interested most to see if this potentially closes down a lot of businesses in the sense that they may be taking key talents from well established small businesses where once they lose their key personnel then they may essentially fold.
