Google is establishing another server farm

Google is going to have some major incentives thrown at it from Iowa. Why can we not get one of these in Illinois? Specifically, down here in the “poor” area of southern Illinois?

The requirements for a site would seem to be land and electricity. We have LOTS of land, and I have yet to find somewhere (recently) that doesn’t have electricity or pretty close access.

This is a great opportunity to bring major construction dollars and continuing employment of a white-collar industry to our area. Our government should be chomping at the bit to get an industry like this to move into our area, but I haven’t heard anything yet…
