For a long time, California was viewed as hostile to phone companies,
or at least AT&T, and I remember clearly people saying that Bell Labs
would never have a location in CA as a result.

Maybe it was the bizarro Bell Labs whose existence meant we couldn't
have the domain belllabs.com [1].

Strangely I have no recollection of a Bell Labs branch further
