Cooling computers will be a growth industry.

A rough analysis by Jon Peddie gives us the rough numbers to indicate this will not only be a growth industry, but because cooler computer run faster, require less energy, and live longer - the "recycling" of computer systems will soon be a major portion of the computer industry. That is, not only will building be big, but recycling and reusing what we have will, by defacto, be a large fraction of the industry (my rough guess, at least 1/10 or 1/20).
