Facebook is stepping out of line, and sharing how the build their data
centers with the world. When this happens, it's always good to
question what they _aren't_ sharing. I just glanced at the
documentation and specs real quick and, the formatting is not
academic, white paper, or open source format. I can't tell if this is
some PR stunt or not, but maybe someone on these lists can share their
thoughts?
