The nine billion ZIP codes of God
Patrick Nielsen Hayden finds Google's actual physical plant somewhat disconcerting:
It's like discovering that the Holy Spirit has a storefront headquarters, and it's in Fresno. That can't be. Like the downward-diving pigeon, Google is numinous, immanent, and everywhere at once. It doesn't have a street address, for cry eye.
Remind me not to mention what's at 1313 South Harbor Boulevard in Anaheim.
