Okay, so the National Capital Area is a finalist for the new Amazon HQ. Some media show that the "Loudoun/Fairfax County line" is the site. What does that mean specifically? I have a few thoughts: 1) Raze the under-performing Dulles Town Center and build the Amazon complex there. It's close enough to Metro, Dulles Airport, and a has large land footprint with hotels and restaurants nearby. It would also be hugely symbolic of the change in consumer attitudes towards shopping malls by replacing a once "high-end" commercial mall to Amazon, with the new king of commerce. (cool). 2) Our area of Loudoun County would certainly be a desirable place to live. (Good for us and our home values). 3) The job market for skilled technical workers suddenly becomes much more competitive as working for Amazon directly could be enticing, and if we are workers, good for us! If we are employers, tough for us (as we have to compete more!). But, I see a real positive effect on workplace dynamics that Amazon (and its culture) could heavily influence the Federal government workplace to be leaner, and more agile (telework, relaxed dress, more autonomy in picking projects) (Good for us). Go Loudoun!
