Old meets New Romance: Google buys paper mill

Like most of you have heard already google bought a paper mill facility close to the Finnish city of Hamina with the goal to have sort of a server farm there. I guess this will be one of the most referred examples how to turn a relict from the industrial age to new usage purposes. The news has sparked some reactions around the globe, here a couple of links reporting about the issue:

Tech Crunch, PSFK, The New York Times, Huffington Post, Reuters, Pakistan Tribune, Yahoo Deutschland etc.

The list could be continued endless, and shows how news distribution works nowadays. Find something interesting, and traditional media and blogosphere transport the news in a wave around the globe.
