From the Wall Street Journal we learn that Sergey Brin has been making some interesting real estate purchases near his Los Altos Hills home. Brin's been buying up commercial properties in his local Los Altos downtown and renting them out at below market rates. The new tenants are family-friendly businesses like a children's bookstore and a cafe with a special children's playspace. Some say it's charity, some say he's just trying to improve his hometown, but either way Los Altos became a little more kid-friendly because of Brin. [WSJ]
