"The Prineville FB data center employs 35 people, but the tech jobs were all filled out of area"

Wrong, and wrong again. Just because you live nearby doesn't mean you have a clue what is going on inside. More than half the full-time tech jobs have been filled locally.

Additionally the site has been under construction for over a year and a half employing hundreds of people, both locally and from all over the Pacific Northwest. All those folks have been spending their money in Crook County, hotels, restaurants, bars, etc. Every day for the past 18 months. I've seen Central Oregon before this project began, and since - the economic benefits have been palpable and positive.

Google has never made their *datacenter* designs, or even their locations public. They have shared their server design, or at least an outdated one.

From what I've heard from Ex-Googlers they never actually deployed the container concept beyond one half, of one of their many, many facilities.
