A content farmer is an emergent type of online
journalist contracted to generate articles based on words
peaking in Google Trends. Coburn
periodically holds readings at data centers worldwide, including the
Google campuses in New York and Zurich and Bahnhof's Pionen complex
in Stockholm. In Rotterdam, Coburn is collaborating with
i3D.net. These events give attendees access to the facilities
that compose the physical form of the Internet – to the sites where
"the cloud" is kept.
