I'm Google, And I've Just Found...The Internet

A new patent filing by Google evokes images of a new advertising campaign by AT&T featuring tv anchor Bill Kurtis traveling to the furthest regions of the earth and using a mobile broadband card to "find the internet."

Google seeks to take the internet to the seas by placing shipping containers filled with data centers on barges or other platforms.

And the energy source is quite efficient. Google wants to use the splashing of waves up against the barge to create energy to power the data centers.

Google wouldn't be the first to use shipping containers for servers. Hewlett-Packard, I.B.M., Dell and Sun Microsystems have all used the method, and Microsoft is building one of the world's largest data centers using shipping containers.

Google hopes that their data containers could be used at large events to ease the burden on the local infrastructure. They also seek to aid the military with their data containers.

What do you think of the patent? Share your impressions in the comments.
