I’ve had a number of conversations with a Minneapolis business reporter over the past 18+ months about what the potential impact would be with Amazon coming to town.
My curiosity started long before that… back when Amazon tech recruiters were recruiting hard here to get tech pros to move to Seattle. Then they had a job fair or two in town and somewhere along the line a recruiting event to hire recruiters.
I said to the reporter, they should just come here. It would be good for Amazon, the local tech scene and the business community. And yes they would disrupt things but I said that was a good thing.
