That’s right. Google should buy Iceland.
Why? ‘Cause they can. Iceland’s broke, Google: Not so much.
But really. Iceland would provide an excellent location for Google to operate from. Once they own the country they could repeal any nasty taxes. They could nationalize the geo-thermal power industry —thus using it to power the great white datacenter they would build to house a googillion servers to power the internet and they’d be the greenest company on Earth. And think how much energy they could save on cooling their servers —just open the doors!
They could also have fun nationalizing the telecoms industry and anything else they thought might be useful or have valuable overseas contracts.
The Googleplex already operates like a small city… expanding to a county is the next logical step.
And think of the colorful passport they could issue to the new legion of Googlers.
