@edbott @ajblum Yeah maybe I’m focusing too much on that, but I still can’t imagine them wanting to put a mess of fiber between their ops and the flow.
@edbott Maybe, but given the amount of data they’re moving, I can’t see how they wouldn’t want to be near a cable landing site and a major network junction. Are Columbus and Nashville big enough stops on the data train? cc @ajblum
@edbott I dunno, I can find a lot more problems with DC to add to the list with traffic, but I still think it’s a frontrunner.
@edbott Given the three listed options in the area and its copious network infrastructure, I’ll bet you 20 on something D.C.-ish.
3 locations in the D.C. area + proximity to WaPo + LOTS of datacenters and a giant NAP. Looking pretty good for the Beltway, I’d say.  https://twitter.com/CNBCnow/status/953992067281313792
