After musing about the latest Snowden release...and getting some lol's out of it...

It would be interesting to know how the NSA would interpret the jurisdictional considerations of GFEs floating either in the San Francisco Bay or 12 miles off-shore.  I'm sure it would be a state secret so asking them directly would not be very productive, but interesting ans seemingly reliable information about this stuff seems to be getting out anyway.

NSA doesn't care about laws or jurisdictions.

Sounds nice, but you are both probably somewhat wrong.  The U.S. continues to effectively enforce certain constraints on the intelligence apparatus which they need to work around.  And there are a fair number of lawmakers and other members of the government who are not on-board with complete totalitarianism.

We are under an altered legal state since 9/11 and, like the debt ceiling, it gets extended (by executive order in this case) as needed and is likely to continue to do so forever.  But this state is not sufficient to provide complete flexibility in operations.  It is possible (and I think likely) that further declarations will be made which will open up new flexibility in terms of internal population management, and prudent engineering would be to set up to exploit these flexibilities if called upon to do so.  That is probably why the NSA conducted an long running 'experiment' to see if they could track all almost all persons whereabouts at almost all times using the commercial communications networks.

Whether these barges in question are at all related to various experiments that various leaderships would like to perform is a fair avenue to explore.  If the barges even exist at all, that is, and I've yet to even look into that.

I think its a data center. Probably has something to do with cooling. I know it sounds weird, but google is into that type of shit.

http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/10/31/googles-secret-revealed-barge-to-offer-high-end-showrooms-party-deck/

Google’s mysterious floating barge on San Francisco Bay will feature luxury showrooms and a party deck for the tech giant to market Google Glass and other gadgets to invitation-only clients, multiple sources told KPIX 5.

The project, which has been in the planning stages for more than a year, was created at Google
  • , the secret facility that Google reportedly runs near its corporate headquarters in Mountain View. It is personally directed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin and is Google’s attempt to upstage rival Apple and its chain of popular retail stores, sources said.

A source who has been onboard the vessel, which is moored off San Francisco’s Treasure Island under tight security, told KPIX 5 the first three floors are designed to serve as “dazzling showrooms” that can be outfitted with chrome features and floor lighting. There is an upper “party deck” meant to feature bars, lanais and other comforts so Google can fete its upscale customers.

The building is constructed of interchangeable 40-foot shipping containers that can be assembled and disassembled at will, allowing it to be placed on barges, trucks or rail cars and taken anywhere in the world, the source said. Google could send it to a ski resort one day and then have it shipped to the beach a few days later.

The project has been delayed in part because the U.S. Coast Guard labeled the building a “floating vessel” that requires federally approved safety features.
