Google uses pods as part of the data center footprint. Usually they look more like over sized personal on demand storage units. I would suggest this is a larger version of that footprint. which has been in use for years. Data Centers need tons of cool air, maybe they will used the open water as a resource for cooling. They built a structure in the mountains in New York state, and designed the building to use the ambient temperatures to move the heat our of the dc.

Google's mystery barge is heading on a short cruise to comply with an order requiring it to move from its current home on a San Francisco Bay island.

The agency leasing the Treasure Island space where the barge is being built says the four-story vessel is bound for the Port of Stockton, a destination located about 80 miles east of San Francisco.

The barge is supposed to move by March 7, according to Mirian Saez, director of operations for the Treasure Island Development Authority, which rented the vessel's current home.

Google Inc. and the Port of Stockton didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

The barge is leaving because of a Jan. 31 regulatory order concluding that Google didn't have the proper building permits at Treasure Island. The Port of Stockton falls outside the jurisdiction of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, the regulator that cracked down on the barge.

Google had halted work on the barge late last year amid speculation that the Mountain View, Calif., company was building an aquatic store to sell its products or a party boat.

The company says the barge will serve as an interactive technology center once it's done. A similar barge is being built by Google on the East Coast, too.

Another is that they have so much money they just don't know what to do with it.

Most Likely this

There is a real opportunity to win or lose some bitcoin? I don't think so.

I won't bet  (seems hard anyway - we would have needed an escrow) but I'm curious if/when they are finally opened to the public. Did they announce at least who is the target audience of the "interactive technology centre", when it will be done or any other new info?

thx
