  1. interesting … but no.

    if you look at a datacenter as a complete system it’s inputs are
    – energy
    – data

    it’s outputs are
    – data

    so it’s going to use local energy. fair ’nuff

    what about the data? both in – and – out? run undersea cables 11km from the barges to the mainland? and soon as those data connections are made to the fat pipes, there’s a presence (if you want to tax anyone – hey, Margret Thatcher found you can tax anyone anywhere).

    or will Google tap into the main undersea cables running between countries? they’d be better setting up shop in the Cayman Islands.

    at least Radio Caroline was able to transmit it’s “data” via the airwaves.
