I fail to see your logic as well. So, datacenters (which, by your own admission are "at the bottom of the IT spectrum"), are somehow better in large urban areas, but not in rural areas? Also, why would company executives (which oversee thousands of employees) relocate to oversee a staff of 35? Your entire rant against "big business" seems a bit prejudiced and contradictory.
You may have your own reasons, but I see this as a positive influx of revenue into a depressed economy which has seen the death of it's timber industry, the exodus of administrative jobs from it's signature employer to Bend, and could use the boost to local business, real estate, etc. that will all follow from this project.
And in this current economy, I'd be willing to bet they can find people willing to relocate to Prineville for the promise of employment with benefits and steady income.
