Here's a contrast for you:

70% of the world's Internet traffic - 70% - passes through Northern Virginia (for a variety of reasons), through 50+ data centers with over 7 million sf of servers and other gear. On my way to work I can see 5 or 6 new data centers under construction, each with over an acre under roof.

Yesterday, Amazon announced plans to expand its cloud services operations about 7 miles from me - 500 new jobs, each estimated to pay $100,000+ - and Amazon is getting a "package" in infrastructure improvements from both the state and county.

Unless NYS can pony up more than tax-free zones, it'll continue to trail other states in recruiting businesses.
