    I do. When is Google gonna open up Goggleland?

    What kind of attractions would they have?

    Would it be free to get in?

    What are you thoughts or crazy ideas?

    There's already a Googleplex...

    * Lobby Décor - Piano, lava lamps, and live projection of current search queries from around the world.

    * Hallway Décor - Bicycles and large rubber exercise balls on the floors, press clippings from around the world posted on bulletin boards everywhere. Many Googlers standing around discussing arcane IP addressing issues and how to build a better spam filter.

    * Googler Offices - Googlers work in high density clusters remarkably reflective of our server setup, with three or four staffers sharing spaces with couches and dogs. This improves information flow and saves on heating bills.

    * Equipment - Most Googlers have high powered Linux OS workstations on their desktops. In Google's earliest days, desks were wooden doors mounted on two sawhorses. Some of these are still in use within the engineering group.

    * Recreation Facilities - Workout room with weights and rowing machine, locker rooms, washers and dryers, massage room, assorted video games, Foosball, baby grand piano, pool table, ping pong, roller hockey twice a week in the parking lot.

    * Google Café - Healthy lunches and dinners for all staff. Stations include "Charlie’s Grill," "Back to Albuquerque," "East Meets West" and "Vegheads." Outdoor seating for sunshine daydreaming.

    * Snack Rooms - Bins packed with various cereals, gummi bears, M&Ms, toffee, licorice, cashew nuts, yogurt, carrots, fresh fruit and other snacks. Dozens of different drinks including fresh juice, soda and make-your-own cappuccino.

    * Coolest stop on the tour - A three-dimensional rotating image of the world on permanent display on a large flat panel monitor in the office of the engineer who created it. What makes it special is the toggle switch that allows you to view points of light representing real time searches rising from the surface of the globe toward space, color coded by language. Toggle and you can see traffic patterns for the entire Internet. Worth a trip to the second floor.

    * Nearest 24 hour doughnut shop - Krispy Kreme, Mountain View, CA.

    Hi and welcome to Googleland

    Ahh GooglePlex. I've heard a lot about it but I never seen it. I live so close I could.

    But that is more for the employees right?

    I'm talking a "land" for tourist to see the latest inventions, future technologies, perhaps a simulation 3-D ride using Google Earth technologies or even take a real ride up into space!

    Of course there would be ads everywhere you go!

    Just a thought.

    It would have billions of attractions, but visitors would spend all their time searching for them.

    Google said they were looking into off shore servers. Start their own Google Navy. Wouldn't surprise me if they actually bought a freakin' Caribbean Island.

    Googleland, they let you in for free but will record all your data before you can enter. When you want to get food they will suggest things they think you would like. The information desk has unlimited data but if you want use it they will tell everyone else in the park where you are going.
