I think one thing that I learned from this Facebook outage is that the 
impact to steady supply of electricity to computing and networking gear 
under spool-up load is not a small problem to scoff at.

We could shutdown the entire Internet, and power companies will probably 
love us. But they will hate a tad more as we reboot it.
