Monday afternoon data center tidbits.


I’ve been reading about the great Facebook Oregon data center money giveaway. It’s funny that a lot of states won’t give a hoot about locally based and operated businesses that might actually benefit their communities, but they’ll hand out $2.8 million to a huge corporation to get 35 jobs (power for next to nothing and the right weather for free air cooling wasn’t enough). I wonder how long it will take them to recover the $80,000 they’re buying each job for.

If you’re going to spend money for economic growth, do it smart.
