Other than pure coolness, you had to wonder why there is a Google Map above that is tracking one of our boxes from Project Blackbox. Simply put, the container tracked above is going on tour. There will be some 30 cities represented on the tour, not including all of those Flying J's along the way to gas up and get a hot dog. Even Rochester, MN is represented on the tour. My son was born there at the Mayo Clinic. I can honestly say, there is no better town than Rochester, MN to be sick in.
There will be a live, "official" web site with tour information coming soon. This will be an "unofficial" blog site for the tour where we post bits and baubles from the tour, including this picture of a guy violating union rules and trying to push the box just a little further (its a joke, really...):
The Project Blackbox tour is pretty full, but who are we to turn down a potential customer? You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like an opportunity to visit the BlackBox enroute.
With Project Blackbox, we get to bring you the data center.
And, finally, an open invitation to all of you Sun Bloggers and potential customers that are planning on seeing the tour. Feel free to send me a link to your post and I'll link out to you. Or, if you don't have your own blog, send me your thoughts and pictures and I will do what I can to get them posted!
