Google has entered into talks in relation to the rental of all 202,000sq ft (18,766sq m ) of space at the Sorting Office, the seven-storey office block being developed in the Dublin docklands by Pat Crean’s Marlet Property Group.
Should a deal be agreed, the accommodation at the Sorting Office would provide Google with enough room to grow its existing 8,000-strong Dublin-based workforce by up to 2,000 employees. A spokesperson for Google declined to comment.
The news of Google’s negotiations with the Sorting Office’s Singapore-headquartered owner, Mapletree Investments, comes just three weeks on from The Irish Times reporting of the US tech giant’s agreement to lease more than 75,000sq ft (7,000sq m) of office space in Block I at Green Reit’s Central Park scheme in Sandyford, Dublin 18.
Following on from the “The Algorithm Method” post in June, it would be really good if you shared the follow-up video
While many readers are with Google’s political lean, people aught to take a longer term view and consider the flimsy and subjective nature of a term like “authoritative content”….and hopefully look past the politics of someone like Gemma O’Doherty who is trying to take Google to task and is vocal on these matters in her protests (top at their Dublin HQ).
Supporters of Dublin Says No To Hate – including Izzy Kamikaze (top) – gathered outside Irishtown Garda Station on Irishtown Road in Dublin 4 to protest “the gardai’s inaction” toward what organisers allege as “the ongoing open incitement to hatred taking place on the streets of Dublin”.
This group – including Green Party councillor Hazel Chu (second pic, addressing those gathered) – then walked to the headquarters of Google on Barrow Street, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin 2 – where a separate protest was being held.
Daily protests led by Anti Corruption Ireland founder Gemma O’Doherty, who was de-platformed by Google-owned YouTube, have been taking place outside the tech giant’s Dublin HQ for the past number of weeks.
Dublin Says No To Hate regard Anti-Corruption Ireland as ‘anti-immigrant’ (a charge ACI deny) are seeking YOUTUBE and other tech giants to deplatform and censor those they consider to be ‘far right’.
Video footage from the anti-protest protest outside Google’s HQ, taken by Mark Malone, shows a man seemingly make a Nazi salute during the protests.
Here's a long thread of photos and video of this guy through out the fascist demonstration proving he clearly knew others there and was there from at least 5 minutes beforehand to the very end https://t.co/QASVYMylNL
Furthermore, G O'D are accusing this guy of also being in on the antifa plant stunt. People should try and identify him too, cos he may be eager to clear his name and say he has nothing to do with any of this and is being unfairly accused. He certainly doesn't look like a Gembot. pic.twitter.com/UGAJfDHFnB
The European Union orders Google to pay $1.7 billion for allegedly abusing its dominant position in online search advertising. Europe has now fined the tech giant $9.3 billion over the past three years. https://t.co/OtPs9SW9PFpic.twitter.com/0rThm9tNWA
