I mean, under Atlanta it says: "It's just not that cool."

Austin: "doesn't feel like a major U.S. city."

Christ, this is why people hate New Yorkers.

They do feel supreme and arrogant. Kinda of a dog eat dog mentality up there.

I also detect some subtle snubs directed at us:

Now it has narrowed the field to 20 places, including three bids from the Washington D.C., area, where Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos has put down roots, as well as proposals from smaller Midwestern cities (Columbus, Ohio; Indianapolis) and major population centers (New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and Dallas).

Very ignorant- you can love NYC and still be educated about the world outside of Manhattan. You find many of these "business" writers really don't know much and don't spend much time in other parts of the country. Philly is second most populous city on the entire east coast and this person doesn't consider it a "major" city?

Exactly. Translation: we couldn't think of a single con, so we'll dredge up an outdated stereotype.

Holy Eff!!

Now Apple is going to build an HQ2 somewhere in the US

Philadelphia absolutely has to make a play for this, along with the Amazon HQ2. Now, Apple is a PERFECT fit for the Navy Yard. Just like Amazon is PERFECT fit for Schuylkill Yards.

LET'S MAKE THEM BOTH HAPPEN!!!!

The Meet Group opens Philly office in bid for talent

Quote:
New Hope, Pa.-based The Meet Group, the social media conglomerate whose Bucks County HQ is about an hour’s drive from City Hall, opened up a new 5,600-square-foot Center City office.

Since 2016, and until Monday, the company kept a Philly outpost by way of a mid-sized office at WeWork’s first location in Northern Liberties. Per CEO Geoff Cook, the bigger hub will allow the company to tap into a wider pool of tech talent, especially data engineers. Consider it a continuation of the gateway offices trend that many suburban companies have pursued in recent years to cater to city-dwelling millennials.

Currently, the company’s Philly office at 12th and Chestnut holds a team of 12. By year’s end, Cook expects that number to rise to 15 or more.

All told, The Meet Group has 300 employees: 130 in the greater Philly area, about 60 in San Francisco and 100 in Germany as a result of the acquisition of Lovoo.

Anyone know which building on the 1200 block of Chestnut they moved to? The article should really state this.

Re: Amazon HQ2

I read past articles in 2017 that referenced the coming of the 2nd or Next Silicon Valley in North America including Toronto, Austin, and Atlanta. Some other US cities, but they didn't make the Amazon cut announced today. So, just wondering if Amazon will be bias in their selection based on how other businesses have set up shop in these cities to be honored with that moniker. If Amazon is looking for like company (e.g., other tech companies in the same city), does that put us at a disadvantage on the next cut, say the next 10 cities to reach the winning city bid. Thoughts?
